Wayne Rooney hailed Manchester United's attacking play in their 4-3 friendly win over Hannover.

Rooney was encouraged by the attacking interplay that produced more goals in one night than the team had managed in the previous five games put together.

"It was end-to-end and we were a bit sloppy at times. We could have done better defending," the 26-year-old forward told MUTV.

"But I thought some of the play throughout the game was great. Some great link-up play between us.

"We've got the four goals which maybe we were lacking in pre-season and it's great to get them with the season coming up."
