Wayne Rooney has admitted that the team needs to score more goals

Wayne Rooney has admitted that the team needs to score more goals if they are to win football matches on a regular basis.

Once Manchester United were regarded as the epic tome of attacking football when it comes to the Premier League. However, they have barely managed to score more than a goal per game under the regime of Louis Van Gaal. This was not significantly better than the previous regime under David Moyes. The failure to score goals has been the club go on a run of five matches without a win in all competitions.

United have also been knocked out of the Champions League as a result of their poor form. This has raised pressure on manager Van Gaal, but it appears that he continues to retain the faith of captain Wayne Rooney. Even though Rooney has been played out of position, the striker has not been complaining much. The statistics of the 30-year-old has plummeted this season. Rooney has scored a grand total of just four goals for United in 13 appearances. This is turning out into one of the worst seasons for the England international, who needs to build his form soon in order to lead the England national team at the Euro 2016.

The 2013-14 season saw Rooney finished with 17 goals just in the league.“I think we need to score more goals as a team.I feel we showed a lack of composure which put ourselves under pressure a lot of times.It’s a learning curve for us, but we can’t go on saying it’s a learning curve. We have to start turning these games into victories.We’re disappointed we didn’t win this game.Going out to Germany is always tough, but we have to believe in ourselves and have the confidence in ourselves to do that,” said Rooney.
