Wayne Rooney and Nani Celebrate With Manchester United Team

Community Shield: Manchester City 2-3 Manchester United

Manhester United boss, Sir Alex Ferguson has never let slip a two-goal lead in his managerial career.

This match was also a Manchester Derby between the two Manchester superclubs. Trailing 2-0 at the break, United transformed and revitalized after a pep talk from Fergie.

United’s second half goals were scored by Chris Smalling (21) and a brace from Nani (24).

New goalkeeper, David De Gea suffered an ackward debut similar to his predecessors, Peter Schmeichel and Jaap Stam. Edwin van der Sar is a hard act to follow, however De Gea need more time to adjust to England football.

“This shows who the best team is,” exclaimed Man Utd striker, Wayne Rooney.

“All game we dominated. We never know when a game is finished. We took them apart. The scoreline is deserved. We’re champions and we’re the team to beat. We want to prove that.

“Of course [it is sweeter because it was a derby]. And obviously they are wanting to try and fight us for that title. But I think there was only one team that was going to win. We showed our character to come back.”

“Have to say, I think today was a footballing lesson. A great win for the champions.”

Sir Alex Ferguson's side had an average age of 22 after he withdrew Rio Ferdinand, Nemanja Vidic and Michael Carrick at the half.

“For us, I think it just confirms what I’ve thought,” said Fergie.

“People were saying that we’re not the best United squad, but you’ve got to remember we have a lot of young players, and they will improve.

“These boys are good players and the addition of Jones and De Gea gives us a good future. We are confident with this group of players.”
