Rooney berates Birmingham stars after making nightmare start | Football | Sport

Scoring goals has been an issue for Birmingham this season, despite picking up five wins from 11 games before Rooney came in. The hierarchy at the Club hired Rooney as they felt he would bring a ‘no fear’ style of play to the team, and he was upset after the game as his players reverted to their old ways.

“We need to be better. We need to improve and be better with the ball,” Rooney said after the game. “Defensively we did OK, Middlesbrough cause you problems, we know that they are a good team.

“With the ball, in possession, we need to be better. We need to be more comfortable taking the ball while marked and being more creative by doing that. I thought Middlesbrough had good periods in the game when they got through, and then we got a bit of a foothold on it.
