The Manchester Evening News notes:
Rooney said of the midfielder’s comeback: R20;It was a bit of a shock to be honest, we didn’t know until we were in the dressing room, but he’s a great player.”
Rooney’s future has been the subject of speculation and he made a point of clutching the United badge after scoring his first.
Asked if he had a point to prove, Rooney told ITV:
R20;No, not at all. Everything that has been in the press of late is a load of nonsense really.
R20;There is no problem for me at this club, I want to be at this club for a long time.”
On the game, Rooney said: R20;We knew it was going to be difficult today, going 3-0 up we maybe took our foot off the gas a bit.
Most United fans are happy to see Scholes back in the side and while I’m a little disappointed we obviously wont be adding any more midfielders in January, it’s impossible not to smile at the sight of the Ginger Genius in a red shirt.
