English Premiership

United can win the title roars Rooney

ROONEY-WEST-HAMLONDON, December 16- Wayne Rooney has warned Premier League leaders Chelsea that Manchester United are capable of winning the title this season.

United stretched their winning run to six matches on Sunday with an emphatic 3-0 victory over bitter rivals Liverpool at Old Trafford.

Despite struggling in the opening stages of what was expected to be a season of transition under new manager Louis van Gaal, United have risen to third in the table and they are only eight points adrift of Chelsea heading into the hectic Christmas programme.

So far this season Chelsea have looked the class of the league, but that does not faze Rooney.

The striker was part of the United team that won the league six seasons ago despite trailing Liverpool by eight points in January and he also remembers their last triumph in 2013, when they won the title by 11 points despite rarely blowing sides away.

“I think we have to believe we can win the title,” Rooney said.

“We are eight points behind and coming into a busy period.

“If we can win our games and the others have one bad result then there is nothing there.

“We have to keep winning our games and hopefully get back to the top and you never know.

“We won the league two years ago and we weren’t great in a lot of those games but we got the results.

“We have shown a great resilience this season. Some of the games haven’t gone the way we would like but we are winning them and that is a great quality to have.

“We have been here before but we have a lot of new players and this is where the experience of myself, Michael Carrick and Darren Fletcher can rub off on the other players.”

    Nigerians I love this protest and I think we All should put all our countries predicaments in one basket not just to fight for fuel but also Light and Jobs. Goodluck is trying to end a cartel obviously, but putting nigerians tru difficulty will only increase public hatred for him. If the NLC have been bribed by this cartel!! Nigerians should seek justice. President goodluck should understand that nigerians have bottled up anger over the years and increasing the price of fuel will only cause poverty in the nation. We have Gold, Coal, mineral resources yet the give fight for oil. Who are we? We are simply slaves in our own country. For peace to reign Jonatan should concentrate on reviving the refineries we have and add more refineries to what we have here. Thereby creating more job opportunity for citizens we have been under the armpit of X-presidents of Nigeria. The Nigerian police are extremely corrupt that I can’t describe my house to an officer because he cud come tomorrow as an armed robber. This is as a result of bad government and poor resources for training and poor accommodation for this fellas. In this time of crises in the country. In this time of crises leading to religion crises which could divide Nigeria, this subsidy arises. Please Mr president you should build this countries well. Prepare infrastructures provide constant light Reduce ridiculous taxes build and reconstruct our refineries and reduce fuel to N11.00 just the way it use to be and free Education to reduce the level of illiteracy in the country. Companies who.are charged excessive taxes by Lagos state government to the extent we pay consumption tax how can they employ youth? Please Nigerian leaders be considerate you can’t be buried in ur graves with stolen money. Wen you die those banks pretend u never deposited money there at all what is the use? If Nigeria wants to be divided into two countries, then it should be done peacefully with mutual understanding. Northerners and southerners
