"I think it was a complete performance, one of those days when the game is under your control, and we managed to close it in time to add the three points".

"He has seen United have even deeper pockets that even they first imagined".

But despite the Blues' struggles, Rooney still thinks the champions will finish inside the top four, this season.

"I think at Manchester United he didn't get the freedom he really wanted to go and perform, that he had at Dortmund and that style of play that Dortmund played".

"In terms of catching Manchester City, certainly not this season and, if I'm honest, next season it will be very hard", he told Sky Sports' Monday Night Football programme when assessing United's prospects in the Manchester rivalry.

The 32-year-old has started to plan for a time after he hangs up his boots and said: "I would like to go into management".

Do you think Rooney got the credit he deserved at Man Utd?

Manchester United are likely to be short of midfield options in the summer with Marouane Fellaini and Michael Carrick poised to leave.

Turning his attention to the England squad, the former skipper said some players are not hurt by defeat and should learn from the attitude of Harry Kane, whom he described as "probably the best striker in Europe".

Brighton also bagged its first league win in seven games thanks to goals from Glenn Murray, Jose Izquierdo and Pascal Gross to beat West Ham 3-1. If we got a player sent-off, the players would work out how we change the formation themselves on the pitch, and if there was a problem the manager would change it.

'I would gladly do that for him to score big goals and help us win trophies'.
