Wayne Rooney believes Manchester United are in a “good position” after a 1-1 draw with 10-man Bayern Munich in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final.

The Red Devils captain broke the deadlock in the 58th minute at Old Trafford after the Serbia international powered a header past Bayern goalkeeper Manuel Neuer.

However, United’s lead was short-lived, with Germany international Bastian Schweinsteiger scoring from close range to net a vital away goal in Manchester.

The 29-year-old midfielder was sent off after picking up a second yellow card for a reckless challenge on Rooney in the closing moments of the tie, with Javi Martinez also banned for the second leg.
