Rooney Leads United Past Real Sociedad

MOST COMMENTED

Wayne Rooney put in yet another man of the match performance as Manchester United beat Real Sociedad 1-0 in UEFA Champions League Group A play on Wednesday. Sociedad defender Inigo Martinez put the ball in his own net while trying to clear an effort from Rooney, who beat several defenders prior to shooting, that came off the post.

After the game, Rooney said: "I thought we played some great football. We should have won the game by three, four or five, but I'm happy we got the win, that's most important thing. We defended well, a clean sheet is always pleasing. We created a lot of chances and on another day we will take them and win the game more comfortably."

Rooney also revealed that he is “happy” and enjoying life under new United coach David Moyes. "The new coach that has come in [and has given me] a new lease of life," he said. "I'm really enjoying working under David Moyes."

The England striker added that he was happy that former coach Alex Ferguson’s autobiography, which was released earlier this week, revealed that he had never formally asked for a transfer request. "He has come back and corrected the story that I put a transfer request in," Rooney said of Ferguson’s book. "He's gone back and proven that I didn't.”
