Rooney exclusive

"We’ve played better in the last few games than we have all season and it was always going to be the case with a new manager coming in that we’re taking his ideas onto the pitch. We’re finally finding our feet now and putting into the games exactly what the manager wants us to." 

- Wayne Rooney

Rooney: Watch us go

Some said the Stoke game, coming back from 2-1 down to win, might have been a turning point…
The Stoke game probably wasn’t out best performance, but what it showed was the great spirit and desire that we have. We knew at half-time that we had to win that game. Anything other than three points wasn’t going to be good enough. We had already dropped points and we didn’t want to drop any more. We showed great determination in our game that day and a good discipline in the areas we needed to so that we could get back into the match. That was a massive result for us and it’s had an impact when you look at the games and the results we have had after that.

How do you feel your form has been? You look like you’re enjoying yourself…
I’ve said all along that I just want to play football and I feel I’ve started the season well and scored a few goals and I’m creating chances for my team-mates too. I’m enjoying that and I want to put all my focus on trying to help the team get back towards the top of the table. That’s the aim for us all and if I can contribute to that then it’d be great.
