Rooney give me 10 goals and Berbatov 30, demands FergusonFebruary 2nd, 2011 - 1:44 pm ICT by ANI
London, Feb 2 (ANI): Manchester United Sir Alex Ferguson wants Wayne Rooney to score at least 10 goals and his expectation from striker Dimitar Berbatov is of 30 goals.
Rooney scored twice in a game for the first time since last March 14, 2010, leading Manchester United over Aston Villa 3-1 in the English Premier League.
Ferguson said: “It is the scoring partnership that matters and the combination between our two front men has improved beyond all recognition.”
“If we finish the season with Berbatov scoring 30 and Wayne on 10 I will be more than happy. That is what I call a successful strike partnership,” The Sun quoted him, as saying.
Berbatov has 20 goals so far and Rooney five. Nemanja Vidic got No 3 against Villa to keep United five points ahead of the second placed Arsenal.
Rooney said: “It’s up to us where the title goes. I was delighted to score and hopefully I can go on a run now. I’ve been happy with the way I’ve been playing, but as a striker I want to score.”
United drew level with the great Treble winners as they matched the class of 1999’s unbeaten league run of 29 games. (ANI)
