"Where do we get the 26 goals that Ronaldo gave us?" said Ferguson. "That is a concern because I don't have a young Paul Scholes or a young Ryan Giggs who can give me 15-plus goals from midfield areas. We'll have to redirect our play and push Rooney through the middle.
"Last season was a lot to do with Dimitar Berbatov coming to the club and trying to understand what he was best at. You have to utilise what you have available.
"Some games Rooney did play wide left and in some matches it worked, but in others it was not a good position for him to be in. We will change that."
