Moyes admits Rooney was below par

Manchester United manager David Moyes believes Wayne Rooney’s performance in the Champions League defeat against Bayern Munich was severely hampered by his foot injury, ESPN has reported.

Rooney had a pain-killing injection to allow him to play at the Allianz Arena after chipping a bone in his toe in the first-leg at Old Trafford last week. The England striker sat out United’s weekend win over Newcastle but returned to the starting XI in Germany despite a lack of fitness.


“I was concerned that Wayne had not trained all week and he had taken an injection,” Moyes said after the 4-2 aggregate defeat. “At times it looked like it was a struggle striking the ball.


“He is so vital a player to us,” Moyes continued. “He is so important especially with Robin van Persie out just now. He had a couple of opportunities but couldn't quite take them.”


United went in front on the night and 2-1 on aggregate through Patrice Evra’s second-half goal but Bayern restored parity 15 seconds later through Mario Mandzukic. Subsequent goals from Thomas Muller and Arjen Robben confirmed the holders’ progression to the semi-final stage, where they are joined by Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid and Chelsea.
