Three goals in a week isn’t enough for David Moyes.
Manchester United boss David Moyes feels Wayne Rooney still has more to give, despite the England star’s dramatic return to form.
After suffering a head injury, Rooney to the United line-up in sensational style with a goal against Cyrstal Palace at the weekend and two against Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League midweek.
Moyes was coy when asked about a possible extension to his contract, instead insisting he wants Rooney to continue improving his form.
Speaking to the Telegraph, the Scot said: “I think we just go step by step. If he could score another two goals at the weekend that would be the next step forward wouldn’t it?
“He’s played really well and we want him to maintain that. If anything I’m asking him to step up again. I want him to keep getting better
“Wayne was in great shape just before he damaged his hamstring in Thailand,” said Moyes.
“I told you that but I don’t know if you all believed me. We thought (his hamstring) was going to be okay, but it wasn’t.
“We kept him working really hard and he was in really good shape. I was really impressed with the condition he was in and the work he did in pre-season.
“He is getting the fruits of that. He’s worked hard and is showing everyone exactly what he can do.”
