Wayne Rooney admits Swansea City defeat is hard to take


Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney was bitterly disappointed after his side failed to take anything away from the Liberty Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The Red Devils suffered their fifth defeat in the Premier League, the second against Swansea City, and will drop out of the top four if Southampton beat Liverpool on Sunday.

"Of course, it is hard to take," Rooney told MUTV.

"Certainly, in the second-half, I thought we dominated up until they scored and I thought we scored a great goal to go 1-0 up. I was really disappointed in the way we conceded a goal, coming from a throw-in so soon after we scored.

"We went in at half-time knowing that we could play better and we were disappointed with the goal that we conceded.

"In the second half, I thought we dominated and they were struggling to get out and then they hit us with a sucker punch, a shot from 30 yards and a deflected goal. These things happen but it was a disappointing day for us.

"If we could have kept hold of the lead until half-time, Swansea would have had to have tried to come out more leaving even more space for us.

"As I said before, I thought we dominated but maybe didn't test the keeper enough up until they scored, that's disappointing given the play we had.

"It was one-way traffic and it felt like that on the pitch, it felt like a matter of time.

"We were putting them under pressure, but they did defend the box well, putting bodies in front of the ball but this is a blow for us. Coming away from today with no points having played like that is a blow."
