Wayne Rooney has urged his Manchester United troops to take the form they showed in thrashing Club Brugge in the Champions League qualifier last night into Sunday’s match against Swansea.
United won the match 4-0 with Rooney helping himself to a hat-trick while Ander Herrera added the other goal in the rout that saw them progress 7-1 on aggregate.
It marked a return to form for the England captain who had gone 10 games without a goal before the victory.
His rallying call on Twitter was perhaps aimed at himself more than his teammates. “Great performance from the team last night. Got to take that into the #BPL on Sunday now,” he said.
