Rooney’s goal was better, says Tettey

Norwich City midfielder Alexander Tettey believes Wayne Rooney’s long-range effort was better than his spectacular goal this weekend, Sky Sports has reported.

Alexander Tettey scores against Sunderland

Tettey netted from the edge of the penalty area, a swerving volley that put the Canaries two goals up against Sunderland, while Rooney scored from almost the half-way line to put Manchester United in front against West Ham.

It was Tettey’s first Premier League goal for Norwich but, he said, not the best goal of the campaign, or even of the weekend. “It was a good strike on the ball by me and a good goal but it is not goal of the season,” he said.

“It is not even goal of the day. I saw Wayne Rooney scored from almost the halfway line against West Ham. That was even better.

“I don't mind because it is Wayne and United are my favourite team.

“I don't know where my goal came from - it went in beautifully so I was pleased with that. The goal counted for more because as a team we went on to get the result.”

Tettey moved to Carrow Road from Rennes in 2012 and has made a total of 46 appearances for the side, scoring twice - on Saturday and against Doncaster Rovers in last season’s League Cup, his debut for Norwich.
