Wayne Rooney believes that Manchester United need to put up a better display against Sunderland this weekend than they did against Swansea City last Saturday.

It was an inauspicious beginning to their season as the Red Devils went down 2-1 to Swansea at Old Trafford last weekend, in manager Louis van Gaal's first game in charge.

The England striker conceded that things didn’t go according to plan against the Welsh outfit, but feels that the club need to look forward.

“It was a disastrous start for us, but we have to move on”, the Manchester United captain told the club’s official site.

Rooney stressed that the squad are working on their mistakes against Swansea, but he feels that Manchester United need to display better cohesion against the Black Cats.  


“We're not happy, the manager's not happy. We'll have to go through what went wrong during the week.

“We'll do that. I thought we didn't play as well together as a team as we can do. We have to put that right.”

Manchester United will hope to get their season back on track when they travel to the Stadium of Light to take on Sunderland this Sunday.
