The long awaited game will also provids the opportunity to avenge last season’s FA Cup semi-final defeat by Roberto Mancini‘s crew, which opened up the path towards an end to the Blues’ 35-year trophy drought. Manchester United on the other hand is very optimistic. Their primer striker, Rooney said:
“You couldn’t get better motivation to start the season with a bang. I hadn’t even thought about it until I turned on the TV and someone was talking about potentially the best Community Shield ever. Playing City is the best way to start.”
Although the FA Cup semi-final was a disappointing day for United, the Red Devils will never forget Rooney‘s sensational winner in the Old Trafford league meeting between the two sides a couple of months earlier.
A game like this will be a high-intensity on the fact that both teams are old rivals and from the same city. The supporters will play an important part in the play and they could be an important factor in winning the game with their psychic.
