thumbnail Hello,

Fergie delighted with his star striker

Sir Alex Ferguson praised match-winner Wayne Rooney after the England striker struck four goals to fire Manchester United back to the top of the Premier League.

“Wayne Rooney’s four goals were the highlight [of the game]” Ferguson told Sky Sports.

“He’s in great goal scoring form.”

However Ferguson was less complimentary about his team’s overall performance despite the comprehensive 4-0 victory over Hull City.

“We played good football at times” he told Sky Sports.

“We were a bit frivolous at times; we took unnecessary risks and really should’ve been punished by Hull.

“For the first 20 minutes we played well but we took our foot off the pedal a bit and in the second half they had one or two good chances.”
