Rooney claims Man U’s `imposing` win over Leverkusen sent `shockwaves across Europe`
London – Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has claimed that his team’s thrashing of Bayer Leverkusen has sent shockwaves across Europe.
According to the Daily Star, United produced one of their greatest Champions League performances to trounce the Germans 5-0 in the BayArena on Wednesday night.
United reached the knockout stages with a game to spare and scored five goals away from home in Europe for the first time since winning the Treble under Sir Alex Ferguson in 1999, the report said.
Rooney said that he was sure teams will look at the result, but they would just focus on the next game.
Rooney has now urged United to beat Shakhtar Donetsk next month and win Group A to set up an easier tie in the last 16, the report added.
