Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has not been able to score in Europe for his team ever since his astonishingly strong debut when he pulled off a hat trick against Fenerbahce way back in September 2004.
Rooney is now going through a 15 match scoreless spell in the actual tournament, not counting the one goal he made during the Old Trafford qualifying match against Debrecen in 2005.
Despite this relatively lackluster showing though, Sir Alex Ferguson is confident that Rooney is about to go through a scoring blitz in the very near future. Sir Alex has expressed his belief that Rooney, which is going back to his old form, is set to explode soon. He points out that in the match with Bolton at the start of the season, everyone was talking about how he has not scored but then came out to do that impressive hat trick that has served as the spark for Manchester United�s remarkable run this season.
Fergie is also confident that Rooney�s infamous temper is now also under control and that he has already grown up into a more cerebral and thoughtful player.
