Man Utd boss believes Rooney could beat record

Ronaldo scored 42 goals for United last season, but Rooney has already managed to score 32 for the Red Devils this season.

Ferguson told Sky Sports News: “I said a while ago it’s impossible for a player to get 42 but he is on 32 and there is a challenge there for him.

“He is capable of scoring in the next eight league games and five possible European games, so he has 13 possible games and you never know, I wouldn’t put it beyond him. I was just glad he got to the 30 mark, but we are enjoying his goalscoring.”
