The breathtaking spectacle also contained some slapstick moments with Rooneyâs dreadful penalty miss and Torresâ open goal howler in front of the Stretford End.
âI thought Fernando Torres was bound to score,â said the Reds manager. âIt was a bad miss. It reminded me of the Diego Forlan miss against Juventus one pre-season. He had so much time but thatâs football.
âWayne hit the post and missed a penalty kick. I donât 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.
âI wasnât worried about him getting a hat trick. I was more worried about us winning the game. So we are all happy.â
