Moyes: Rooney Is Dedicated

Manchester United manager David Moyes believes that Wayne Rooney is dedicated to the cause following his 30-minute stint in their 4-1 win over Swansea.

The England striker, who started against Scotland for the Three Lions, has been surrounded by speculation this summer following Sir Alex Ferguson's revelation that the player wanted to leave.

Moyes has constantly claimed that Rooney is not for sale though, but questions were asked about his dedication to the team after failing to join in the touchline celebration for Robin Van Persie's second goal - which he had a hand in.

"When you cross that white line it is very difficult not to be committed," said Moyes. "Lots of people are judging you.

"When you cross that white line it is up to you. I thought he was incredibly committed for the team and helped set up two goals.

"Wayne did well when he came on. He made a great run which opened up the chance for Robin to move the ball onto his left foot for his goal and the ball he slipped through for Danny was well weighted.

"He helped the team today in getting the result."

After sending Welbeck through, the player was stuck nursing a bit of a knock, which Moyes confirmed, "He got a kick. It was quite a bad one down the back of his Achilles.

"He is still lacking match practice but I gave him another 30 minutes today and that will bring him on."
