Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney says their loss to Liverpool was one of his worst ever as a player but admits his side were 2nd best.


Rooney told Manchester United TV (MUTV) “It’s one of the worst days I’ve ever had in football.

Manchester United were beaten by title chasers Liverpool 3-0 in the latest set-back this season for the Red Devils. Steven Gerard converted two penalties while Luis Suarez scored the 3rd as Liverpool kept their title ambitions alive.

“It’s hard to take. You have to give Liverpool credit – they played well – but it’s difficult to take. “Nobody wants to lose, especially in this way, in your own stadium. It’s not nice.”

“We had a game plan for the second half, which went out the window when they got the second penalty so early on.

“It made it an uphill battle to come back. I thought after that we had a couple of chances where I thought, if we got one, we could have gone for a second and maybe we could have done it.

“I haven’t seen the penalties back again but from where I was standing on the pitch I don’t think we can argue with them.”

Manchester United will now focus on their Champions League tie against Olympiakos on Wednesday where they trail 2-0 form the first leg.
