Man Utd ace Rooney enjoyed midfield role

Manchester United ace Wayne Rooney enjoyed playing in midfield for victory over Champions League opponents Otelul Galati.

Rooney was handed the role from the start and emerged as the best player on the pitch.

He said: "I played there a lot when I was younger and it's something which means you get a lot of the ball and we had to defend at times as well tonight. The manager asked me to do it and I'm happy to do it.

"I've said before I feel I'm a good enough footballer to play anywhere on the pitch.

"I'm not being big-headed, I feel I am capable of doing that and if the manager wants me to play there, I've no problem doing that."
