Wayne Rooney says United's comeback in the Community Shield proves they are the best side in England.
Wayne Rooney says Manchester United’s 3-2 victory against Manchester City in the Community Shield has proved who the better team is.
United came from 2-0 down at half-time to win the match deep into injury time when winger Nani rounded Joe Hart to slot the ball home.
"This shows who the best team is - all game we dominated," Rooney told BBC Radio 5 Live after the win.
"The young lads made the difference - Danny Welbeck, Tom Cleverley, Phil Jones, Chris Smalling - they were all outstanding."
"I think this was a footballing lesson," he added later on Twitter.
United begin the defence of their Premier League title on Sunday away at West Bromwich Albion.
Result: Manchester City 2-3 Manchester United >
