Ryan Giggs says there's no concerns at Manchester United over Wayne Rooney's lack of goals.
Rooney heads to Fulham on Sunday hoping to end a barren run of 13 matches stretching back to his first-minute opener in the Champions League quarter-final first-leg against Bayern Munich in March.
The occasions he did get a sight of the Newcastle goal on Monday evening gave the impression of a man starting to get anxious about a failure that includes a blank time in a World Cup tournament many had predicted he would dominate.
Giggs was amongst that number. However, back amongst friends at United, the veteran Welshman is confident Rooney will soon start to shine again.
"Over the years, I have seen it here quite a lot," reflected Giggs. "People have got all the headlines because they have scored a goal, then actually their performance has been rubbish.
"Wayne's performance on Monday was good. His movement was good and he was creating chances.
"But I accept primarily goalscorers want to score, especially after getting so many last year.
"If he carries on playing well and getting chances, it will come sooner rather than later because he is a brilliant player."
