I didn’t dive against Bayern – Rooney




(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney
has hit out at suggestions that he dived to get Bastian Schweinsteiger
sent off during his side’s Champions League quarter-final first leg
against Bayern Munich.
Schweinsteiger was shown a second yellow card
after sliding in on Rooney towards the end of the 1-1 draw at Old
Trafford, ruling the German midfielder out of next week’s second leg
clash at the Allianz Arena in Munich.

Schweinsteiger exchanged angry words with Rooney after the incident and Bayern coach Pep Guardiola also appeared to make a ‘dive’ gesture to the referee, but the England striker insisted that he had been fouled.
“I don’t really want to say what he (Schweinsteiger) said, but I thought it was a foul,” Rooney said.
“If
I didn’t get out of the way, he could have hurt me. He’s gone in with
his studs and the referee has booked him, so it’s not my decision.

“It’s
not nice to see anyone get sent off. I didn’t try and get him sent off —
the referee has made the decision. I have tried to stop myself from
getting hurt and the referee has had a decision to make.
“He’s a
great player and he’s obviously someone they will miss — and (Javi)
Martinez as well being suspended — but they have a great squad of
players who can come in.”

United took a 58th-minute lead against
the defending champions through captain Nemanja Vidic, before
Schweinsteiger equalised nine minutes later.

The hosts could have
gone in front in the first half, only for Danny Welbeck to miscue an
attempted chip when one-on-one with Bayern goalkeeper Manuel Neuer, and
Rooney was critical of his team-mate’s decision-making.
“We have
watched videos of their goalkeeper and we know he is a bit like (former
United goalkeeper Peter) Schmeichel in the way he comes out, so it’s a
bit disappointing that he tried to dink him, but he will learn from that
and I’m sure if he gets a chance over there he won’t do that again,”
said Rooney.

With United 17 points off the pace in the Premier League and out of both domestic cups, the Champions League represents the English champions’ last hope of winning some silverware this season.
Although
Bayern’s away goal means that they remain favourites to reach the
semi-finals, the 28-year old said that Wednesday’s game at the Allianz
Arena will be an occasion to savour.

“It’s a massive game for our
season. I scored there last time (2010), it’s a fantastic stadium to
play in, and to go there with the chance to knock the holders out of the
tournament is a great incentive to us.
“A result there will keep
our season alive so we’re looking forward to it and it’s a massive
challenge to us. We have to go and prove we are a good team.”
