Roo-m for improvement
Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has admitted he is not happy with his form despite closing in on his best-ever scoring return.
Rooney's double in Sunday's 4-0 win over Aston Villa at Old Trafford took his goal tally to 31, just three fewer than his personal best haul from two seasons ago. In addition, the 26-year-old will equal the feat of legendary winger George Best the next time he finds the net for United, which will be his 179th Red Devils goal. With Sir Alex Ferguson's men once again five points clear at the Premier League summit, and only four games to go, it would appear everything in Rooney's garden is rosy. Yet it seems that is not the case. Immediately after the game, Ferguson claimed Rooney was guilty of being too casual. And, although he did not appear to be impressed at being replaced by Dimitar Berbatov straight after his second goal, Rooney accepts his form is not good. "It was nice to score two goals but I didn't think my performance was good enough," he said. "The rest of my play wasn't great. I am disappointed with that and I will be working hard to put it right."
