Rooney: Man United 'Not Good Enough' at Home

MOST COMMENTED

Following Manchester United’s 3-0 loss to Manchester City on Tuesday, Wayne Rooney admitted that opposing teams no longer fear coming to Old Trafford. The loss, United’s sixth at home in the Premier League this season, is the club’s worst return since 2002, a statistic that Rooney feels is unacceptable.

"It's not good enough," the England striker said in an interview with MUTV. "We can't lose six homes games in a season and we have to put that right, and make this a place which teams fear again." He once again praised United’s fans for sticking by the team: "They were great again tonight. As a team, we need them to be strong and to understand there has been a big change at the club. We have to step up and start giving the fans something to cheer about with some good performances and wins."

Two goals from Edin Dzeko and a late third from Yaya Toure sealed a win that would no doubt put more pressure on United coach David Moyes. "It's a bad night and we didn't deserve to win," Rooney added. "We weren't clinical enough and we didn't create enough chances. No one likes to lose a derby game – they're big games and they're great to win but when you lose it's not a great feeling. It's probably been the story of our season so far, that we've got a couple of good results and then one which sets us back a bit."
