Wayne Rooney calls for focus ahead of key Man Utd football games

25th February 2011 - Berko Tau

Manchester United talisman Wayne Rooney has underlined the importance of securing wins over the next five football games in the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League.

The England striker has highlighted the upcoming three games against Wigan, Chelsea and then Liverpool as pivotal.

He said: "At this time of the season you've got to keep your focus and stay concentrated.

"That's the most important thing because if you look too far ahead and start thinking about other games, then it can go wrong."

Earlier this week, Manchester United football manager Sir Alex Ferguson hinted that injury-prone striker Michael Owen could be available for this weekend's trip to Wigan.

Veteran winger Ryan Giggs could also return for Saturday's clash.

Manchester United currently sit at the top of the Premier League with a game in hand, but are just one point ahead of title rivals Arsenal.
