Manchester United is not a one-man team: Rooney

London, Jan 29 (ANI): Ace striker Wayne Rooney, who already has 21 goals under his belt and is in the form of his life, but said Manchester United is not a one-man team.

"I don't look on us as a one-man team or see it as a great burden on me, it's nonsense. If I don't get the service, I can't score. If I don't, I expect others to, and we've done that well. We've shared the goals out well and it's certainly not just about me. We expect to win as a team, not as individuals," Rooney said.

"And, I don't need to say too much at all to people who think that United are starting to slide," The Sun quoted him, as saying.

"Chelsea have a game in hand, but we're still up there, in a good position in the Champions League and the final of the Carling Cup. I can't see any slide from us at the minute," he said.

"It's so important to get the support of others when you're playing up front on your own, or it can be pretty lonely up there. Those who said I'm not an out-and-out goal-scorer are probably right," Rooney said.

"I always feel I could score more. I didn't used to get that many from inside the six-yard box in previous seasons. But I've worked on my movement to create space and it's paying off.

"So far this season I've managed it - in fact I can't remember a goal I've scored from outside the box and those tap-ins are down to the whole team, not one player," Rooney added. (ANI)
