Ferguson wants Rooney to be spot on

Published 6 Comments

Sir Alex Ferguson has demanded that Wayne Rooney brush up on his penalty technique.

After his failure against Arsenal last weekend, the Manchester United striker almost blew it again on Wednesday night as he slipped just as he was about to let fly from the spot in Braga. Thankfully for Rooney, his shot still went in.

Speaking ahead of tonight's visit to Aston Villa, Ferguson said: "Wayne has to accept he must have a better strike rate at penalties. He is capable of it. The one thing about Rooney is it doesn't matter if it's the World Cup final or the first round of the cup against an amateur team, he will want to score and if he misses it, he doesn't let it affect him."
