Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has backed centurion Wayne Rooney to carry on scoring goals for club and country.
Wayne Rooney made it 101 goals for Manchester United with a double in the 5-0 trashing of Wigan and United boss Ferguson says the England striker, now age 23, can only gain in confidence from reaching the landmark.
Sir Alex said that it is a great achievement considering the fact that he is only a young boy. He also added that some players have been at the club for many years and not reached that total yet and this landmark will do him a world of good.
Sir Alex also said that strikers have to score as it is their mantra and if they are not scoring they think the world is at an end but when they start scoring they think they will never finish scoring and that is what striker are.
