Man City’s Lescott reveals how Rooney made him a double loser over weekend

London, Feb 15 (ANI): Manchester City defender Joleon Lescott has said how he failed to get immediate revenge on Wayne Rooney after his wonder goal won the Manchester derby and became a double loser at the weekend.

After Rooney’s stunning overhead kick won Saturday’s Manchester derby, City defender Lescott lost again to the United striker that night playing FIFA 11 on the Xbox.

“I just smiled at Wayne after the game but spoke to him later that evening through the Xbox. I just said ‘That was a great goal’ - you have to take your hat off to a goal like that. Wayne is a smashing player,” The Sun quoted Lescott, as saying.

“I played FIFA with him. I’m all right but he’s better. And, although he beat me, I’m almost there now - I think I can almost take him!” he said.

Lescott believes City must take heart from their derby display as they now switch their focus to two cup competitions.

“There are a lot of positives we can take from the game but, obviously, we are not going to look back at the result in that way. Although we’re disappointed, in a sense our targets have remained the same. We’re still in third place and want to finish in the top four,” he said. (ANI)
