Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney speaks of his disappointment after a 2-0 defeat by Paris Saint-Germain
Wayne Rooney says Manchester United’s tour of United States was a success despite a disappointing 2-0 defeat by Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday night.
The Red Devils fell behind after England international Luke Shaw scored a 26th-minute own goal before Zlatan Ibrahimovic sealed victory just eight minutes later.
Rooney, who is set to play in a centre-forward role this coming term, scored his only goal of the tour in a 3-1 victory over La Liga and Champions League holders Barcelona.
And the 29-year-old striker reflected on their 75 per cent win rate stateside ahead of the first game against Tottenham Hotspur of the Premier League season.
Rooney wrote: “Not the result we wanted last night but still a great tour. Thanks to all our supporters in America who have made it special!”
The England international scored 12 goals in 33 Premier League appearances for Louis van Gaal’s side last term.
Rooney has netted 170 goals in 340 Premier League games for the Red Devils after he moved to Old Trafford from Everton in 2004.
