Rooney: Man Utd boss Ferguson helped me through my scoring crisis

Rooney said: “It was well documented that I never scored goals for a certain amount of games, but I didn’t let it get me down. I just kept going and playing my game, and it came in the end.

“I don’t think the manager was concerned, no.

“He just told me to keep playing and keep it simple, and that the goals would come soon enough.

“I know my game’s not all about goals, which is all that matters.

“I’d happily go through the whole season without a single goal if it meant us winning the league.”
