It has been reported that Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney says defeat to Swansea City was “hard to take”.
United dominated possession but lost 2-1.
“Of course, it is hard to take,” Rooney told MUTV in South Wales. “Certainly, in the second half, I thought we dominated up until they scored and I thought we got a great goal to go 1-0 up. I was really disappointed in the way we conceded, coming from a throw-in so soon after we scored.
“We went in at half-time knowing that we could play. In the second half they were struggling to get out but then they hit us with a sucker punch, a shot from 30 yards and a deflected goal. These things happen but it was a disappointing day for us.
“If we could have kept hold of the lead until half-time, Swansea would have had to have tried to come out more leaving even more space for us. As I said before, I thought we dominated but maybe didn’t test the keeper enough up until they scored, that’s disappointing given the play we had.
“It was one-way traffic and it felt like that on the pitch, it felt like a matter of time. We were putting them under pressure but they did defend the box well, putting bodies in front of the ball, but this is a blow for us, coming away from today with no points having played like that.”
