The breathtaking spectacle also contained some slapstick moments with Rooneyâ€™s dreadful penalty miss and Torresâ€™ open goal howler in front of the Stretford End.
â€śI thought Fernando Torres was bound to score,â€ť said the Reds manager. â€śIt was a bad miss. It reminded me of the Diego Forlan miss against Juventus one pre-season. He had so much time but thatâ€™s football.
â€śWayne hit the post and missed a penalty kick. I donâ€™t know what he was trying to do with that. He must have slipped. It was unusual. Normally he was very composed and takes his penalty kicks very well.
â€śI wasnâ€™t worried about him getting a hat trick. I was more worried about us winning the game. So we are all happy.â€ť
