Rooney: I can play anywhere

Wayne Rooney says he can play anywhere for Manchester United after he helped his side grind out a 2-0 win against Champions League minnows Otelul Galati.

• Tidey: United do just enough

Antonio Valencia put them ahead with an eighth-minute tap-in but it took until three minutes from the end for United to get their second when Rooney's long-range shot took a huge deflection off Cristian Sarghi.

And Rooney, who impressed in an unusual central midfield role, told Sky Sports: "I played there a lot when I was younger and it's something which means you get a lot of the ball and we had to defend at times as well tonight. The manager asked me to do it and I'm happy to do it.

"I've said before I feel I'm a good enough footballer to play anywhere on the pitch. I'm not being big-headed, I feel I am capable of doing that and if the manager wants me to play there, I've no problem doing that.

"We've come and done a job tonight. We know in the Champions League there are no easy games, they came to defend and pressed quite high up, which was quite surprising. But it was 2-0 and we know if we win the next home game we'll win the group.''

As for the heavily-deflected goal, Rooney added: "I think it's mine! I had a shot and I'm sure the lad won't want it down as an own goal, so we'll see. It would be nice to get it but I'll wait and see what is decided.''

United boss Sir Alex Ferguson said: "Winning was important. The opposition were very aggressive, they defended well, pressed us everywhere and made it difficult for us. The win makes it more comfortable for us at the top of the group and if we beat Benfica we win the group, it's as simple as that. It should be a very good night.''

Ferguson was pleased - but not surprised - by Rooney's performance. "I thought he was fantastic in central midfield,'' he said. "His awareness of people around him and choice of passing was really good. He did very well for us tonight.

"I think it's a short-term thing at the moment. It's difficult to say. The opposition played really well against us tonight but I'd be confident of playing him there (against bigger teams).''

United's night was also soured by Michael Owen's withdrawal through injury after less than 10 minutes. "It's a blow for the lad,'' said Ferguson. "He's done a thigh muscle and it's a complete freak. I feel for him. It's difficult to say how long-term it is.''
