Rooney: Liverpool nightmare one of worst days I've had in football

The Manchester United striker reflected on the dismal defeat to the club’s fierce north-west rivals, while David Moyes insisted it was a “tough day” for the hosts

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney says that the 3-0 defeat at home to Liverpool on Sunday is one of the worst days he’s experienced in football.

David Moyes’ side were taken apart by Liverpool as two Steven Gerrard penalties put the visitors two in front before Luis Suarez sealed the win by slotting home past David de Gea late on.

And Rooney, who endured a frustrating afternoon where he saw little of the ball, confessed that the loss at Old Trafford was one of the worst he’s suffered during his entire career.

He told MUTV when asked about the mood in the camp after the defeat to their rivals: “It’s a nightmare. It’s one of the worst days I’ve ever had in football.”
