Manchester United won the match 2-1, after two goals by Wayne Rooney.
He said: “Rooney scored both goals and he is a quality player, we can all see that. The second goal was exceptional in the manner it was taken but also vital to Manchester United in that it killed the game.
“At 1-0 we were still in the match but that goal put the tie beyond us.
“We were pretty comfortable up until the first goal but I can’t fault the players for their attitude. We put a lot of work in.”
