“We will be confident we can win whoever we get in the next round. If you are going to win this tournament you have to play anyone – and beat them,” Rooney said.
“It was a tough game, we knew Marseille are a big physical team but we came through and just deserved to in the end,” he said.
Rooney set up Hernandez’s first goal and confessed he loves his role-playing just behind the Mexican, The Sun reports.
“He’s got great movement so I’m playing the position that I did when I started playing professionally. I’m enjoying it and thankfully he’s a finisher,” Rooney said.
“It’s not often forwards get the chance to be on the ball and enjoy playing. I enjoyed tonight,” he added.
Boss Alex Ferguson was delighted at how Rooney and Hernandez played as he chalked up his 100th Champions League win – and United’s 150th European win.
“Where Wayne has been playing in the past couple of games he is a real threat and enjoying the freedom. He has such power and speed and Hernandez is unbelievable with his movement – the boy has goals in him,” Ferguson said.
