London: Ace striker Wayne Rooney believes the key to Manchester United retaining their Premier League title is the fact that they never panic in crunch situations also.
United has shown this season in their comebacks at Chelsea and again at Norwich last Sunday that they stick to their game-plan in the belief it will come good, The Sun reports.
Rooney said: “When I was a young lad and first came to the club, we might have been losing a game 1-0 or 2-1 and I’d have been saying ‘Just put the ball in the box’ and panicking a bit about losing.
“Now I’m older and more experienced and know to just keep playing your game because there`s always a chance you`ll get an opportunity to score. That comes from playing so many games and the experience you pick up along the way.”
Rooney believes it was that match at Stamford Bridge, which really showed City they are in a battle right to the final whistle this season, The Sun reports.
“Everyone watching the game would have seen that we’re not just going to lie down — we`ll be fighting until the very end. When you’re 3-0 down it would be easy to just play the rest of the game and accept defeat.”
