No need to alter attacking philosophy says Rooney

Wayne Rooney, Manchester United strikerManchester United star Wayne Rooney feels that the club do not need to curb their attacking philosophy.

The Red Devils are currently nine points clear of closest rivals Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table, despite a series of below par defensive showings.

United’s defences has been breached on 31 occasions this term, just six times fewer than 20th placed QPR.

Rooney believes that their attacking intent has been key to their rise up the table and that this will not be altered:

“We have scored plenty of goals. It is the most number we have scored at this stage of the season.” He is quoted by The Metro.

“But that is the way we have been set up to play. We have to just keep our scoring going.”

However, he did concede that number of goals going in at the wrong end is a worry:

“I can’t put my finger on why we are not killing teams off,

“We have conceded too many and have done throughout the season.”

With memories of losing the title to City on the final day of lasts season still strong in his memory, the England international, who netted the opener in a recent win over Brazil, is adamant that United cannot ease off until victory is secured:

“Results are the most important thing now,

“We have to keep picking up the points when we can.

“Once it comes down to the last four or five games, then we will see what position we are in and work out what we have to do.”
