Rooney Looking To Bounce Back

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney admitted his side were simply not good enough on the weekend after their 4-1 Barclays Premiership loss against Manchester City, but they are looking to bounce back against Liverpool in the Capital One Cup on Wednesday.

United were thumped 4-1 by their cross-town rivals on Sunday with Rooney finding their only goal from a well-struck 25-yard free-kick.

The Red Devils striker, though, does not care that he found the back of the net, but only that his side needs to stop giving away sloppy goals.

“It is not good enough. We know we have to improve and stop giving these sloppy goals away,” said Rooney.

“It is not nice to lose to City. It was a bad result and we are all extremely disappointed.

“It is nice to score, but it means nothing.

“The most important thing was the points and we came away with none.”

Looking ahead to their next match against Liverpool in the Capital One Cup on Wednesday night, Rooney says his side are looking to bounce back with a win.

“We have all grown up, whether it is Manchester, Liverpool or somewhere else having local derbies,” added Rooney.

“It is not nice when you lose one. I have been there as a fan and now as a player. Thankfully we have another massive game against Liverpool.

“It is the ideal game for us. Any game against Liverpool, whether it is a friendly, Capital One Cup or Premier League, is massive.

“We have to try and get the victory so we can put this defeat to the back of our minds."
