Wayne Rooney has told reporters that the pride of Manchester is at stake this weekend as United face City at Old Trafford, with both teams looking to consolidate their places in the Premier League’s top four.
Rooney, who was quoted by the Star ahead of Sunday’s game, told reporters: “I think it’s a very important game for Manchester United and Manchester City. For the fans and for me, it’s a massive game of pride.”
“You play for Manchester United, you want to win these derby games. We want to give United fans something to smile about when they go to work on Monday morning. We want them to be the ones to be able to give out the banter to Manchester City fans at work.”
