Manchester United overcame Swansea City 2-1 yesterday afternoon, with the Old Trafford side getting a much-needed three points to turn fortunes. One of the key figures in the game was Wayne Rooney, who took the winning goal superbly with a fantastic flick that left the Swansea keeper with no chance at all.
Bastian Schweinsteiger has had his say on the ‘unbelievable’ goal, and the German was full of praise for Manchester United’s captain.
“The influence of Martial and Rooney is very important for us. They can score goals.” Schweinsteiger said. “It was an unbelievable goal from Wayne. He couldn’t score against Chelsea, but I think he will be very happy today.”
It was an outstanding finish from our club captain. Rooney has come in for plenty of stick from the fans since the beginning of the season, and rightly so. However his performances over the last two games have been much-improved, and if he can continue this form, we could well see a better Manchester United.
