Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has delivered a blunt verdict by stating the final match against Tottenham at White Hart Lane was just “another game” for him.
The 31-year-old started the Premier League encounter and scored in the second half as Spurs went on to win the match 2-1.
It was a comfortable game for the home team, who opened the scoring through Victor Wanyama early in the first half.
Striker Harry Kane then gave Spurs some breathing space when he neatly flicked in Christian Eriksen’s cross after the break.
England international, Rooney did, however, acknowledge that it was a “special” occasion for those associated with the club.
“To be honest it’s another game against Tottenham,” said Rooney, as quoted by BBC Sport. “It was special for their players and fans but for us, it was another game at White Hart Lane.”
Manchester United have missed the chance to finish in the Champions League places after that defeat in north London.
However, they still have the opportunity to claim a place in Europe’s top competition that is if they can beat Ajax in the final of the Europa League.
By contrast, Spurs have secured the runners-up spot, finishing one place higher than their previous campaign.
Over the course of the season, they have recorded 80 points from their 36 Premier League matches, 15 points ahead of sixth-placed United.
Added to that, they have also finished above their north London rivals, Arsenal for the first time in 22 years.
