“I don’t know where I will play the previous games before it, I just want to play against Sunderland. When the fixtures come out I look for three games – City, Liverpool and Everton. This time I checked the Sunderland game. If there is one team that I want to beat this season it will be Sunderland.” Extract from Wayne Rooney‘s autobiography
Sunderland has never been the most exciting of fixtures in the season up until now but that has all changed, courtesy of their fans.
Having nothing to cheer themselves, they celebrated Manchester City’s title winning goal at the end of the season by mocking our fans with the Poznan.
You can be sure Sir Alex and the players won’t forget that and will want to teach them a lesson on Saturday.
