"We're getting sharper" say's Wayne Rooney

Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney feels that the reds have hit goalscoring form at the perfect time after scoring 4 goals against Hannover 96 on Saturday.

Rooney speaking to MUTV after the match said:

“It was end to end at times, We probably were a bit sloppy and could’ve done better defending, but I thought some of the play throughout the game was great, some great link-up play between us.”

“Thankfully tonight we’ve got the four goals, which we’ve maybe been lacking in pre-season and it’s great to get them in this game with the season coming up.”

“[Pre-season] has been a bit stop-start with the international players coming back a bit later, but I think tonight you’ve seen the players are looking better every game, fitter every game. Hopefully by next Monday against Everton we’ll all be ready. Obviously it will be a difficult game.”

Rooney on Shinji Kagawa:

“It was great, Obviously he’s a very clever player and with the likes of myself, Chicharito, Tom (Cleverley)… there are players there who are capable of getting on the ball and linking the play and it worked for us tonight.”
