Moyes: Rooney was excellent
David Moyes praised the performance of his Manchester United side and in particular Wayne Rooney after Tuesday's 4-2 victory over Bayer Leverkusen.
Rooney scored twice to reach 200 goals for the club, while Robin van Persie and Antonio Valencia also found the net in a vibrant team performance.
The margin of victory could have been more emphatic if a couple of glorious chances had not gone to waste, or if United had not conceded a couple of soft goals, but Moyes still enthused about his side's display.
"The performance was really good tonight and the result was great," he told Sky Sports.
"I think recently we've not scored as many goals as we would have liked but we've got four tonight and maybe could have scored a couple more.
"The players showed their experience out there. After Leverkusen got back at 1-1, we had to make sure that we went again and won the game."
Rooney was the star of the show with a brace, joining Sir Bobby Charlton, Denis Law and Jack Rowley as the only players to have scored 200 times for the club, while he also set up Antonio Valencia for a magnificent fourth United goal.
Moyes said: "Wayne played really well tonight. He scored his goals and his pass to put Antonio in was terrific.
"We want him to keep that scoring record up. I think there are only three or four Manchester United players that have ever achieved 200 goals.
"I remember saying that he could go on to become one of the all-time greats here by his goals,
"I thought his performance tonight was excellent. I think everything he did was worthy of two goals, and maybe more."
