Norwich 1 Manchester U 2

Wayne Rooney

Nor­wich City 1 Man­chester Uni­ted 2, Car­row Road, Eng­lish Pre­mier Lea­gue, Feb­ruary 26, 2012. Way­ne Roo­ney was full of praise for Sir Al­ex Fer­guson af­ter the fi­nal whistle at Car­row Road. Ac­cord­ing to Roo­ney, who missed the 2-1 vic­tory ag­ainst Nor­wich City due to throat in­fec­tion, Fer­guson got the best out of his play­ers and was the key to win­ning the title.

Man­chester United´s per­form­ance ag­ainst Nor­wich City may have be­en a bit shaky, but the three points were ab­so­lutely price­less. Af­ter the win over The Ca­nar­ies, Uni­ted were now on­ly two points adrift of fel­low title chasers Man­chester City. Way­ne Roo­ney: “Sir Al­ex Fer­guson is a great man­ager. He knows which play­ers he can speak to and which play­ers he can shout at. He knows how the play­ers re­act and how to get the best out of them. That’s im­port­ant, es­pe­cially in this day and age. His men­tal­ity for the ga­me, his com­mit­ment and de­sire, and ob­vi­ously things that the play­ers try and take on them­selves. For me, he has be­en bril­liant and he is a great lead­er of our te­am.” Nor­wich City Te­am: John Rud­dy, El­li­ott Wa­rd, Zak Whit­bread, Ad­am Drury, Kyle Naugh­ton, Dave Fox, Brad­ley John­son, An­thony Pilk­ing­ton, Drew Sur­man, Grant Holt, Simeon Jack­son.
