Goal of the Day: Van Nistelrooy at The Valley
Background: There’d been a major disturbance in the force at Manchester United on the eve of this game, with Roy Keane making the shock announcement on the Friday that he had left the club. But with the Reds due at The Valley on Saturday afternoon, to face Alan Curbishley’s well-established Charlton Athletic side, there was no time to mope.
“Rooney and van Nistelrooy were great. Ruud's finish for his first goal was unbelievable”- Sir Alex Ferguson applauds true class.
