Rooney adamant this season only "blip" for Man Utd
Rooney has won five titles during a decade at United, as well as the Champions League and two League Cups.
And suggestions that the Reds could suffer the same kind of Premier League drought as Liverpool are beyond belief.
"It's been a disappointing season for us so far, there's no getting away from that, but anyone who thinks that this is the start of a decline couldn't be more wrong. This is a one-off.
"Liverpool haven't won the title since 1990. I remember United going even longer without winning it, but that will never happen again at this club.
"Liverpool are a great club and it's a surprise to everyone in football that they haven't been champions for such a long time.
"This season has been a blip. There will be no more backwards steps for Manchester United. We are only looking forward."
