The Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed that the penalty taking duties have been taken off the hands of Wayne Rooney at least for the moment.
The striker Wayne Rooney has missed some crucial penalties this season. His latest miss came in the match against West Ham United in the third round of the FA Cup, which could have sent the team out of the tournament once again at this stage. As a result, United decided to hand the penalty taking duties to the veteran Ryan Giggs. The 39-year-old scored from the penalty spot in the 4-1 win over Fulham during the weekend.
