Wayne Rooney sends message to Man United fans about Jose Mourinho

04 September 2017

The Belgium worldwide has made a quick start to life at Old Trafford, scoring three goals in his opening three Premier League games, and ex-United striker Rooney says he is the ideal man to lead the line for Jose Mourinho's side.

Although Manchester United laboured to a sixth-placed finish in the Premier League last season, the Red Devils managed to secure Champions League qualification by winning the Europa League.

Manchester United have bought some big names, such as Paul Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Romelu Lukaku, over the past two seasons, but here are nine players whose deals with the club expire at the end of this campaign.

"For that United side, he is the ideal player", said Rooney.

Rooney believes United would have further improved, if Van Gaal was still in charge at the club last season.

Ms Merkel responded by saying that she had implemented the first article of the German constitution which upholds human rights. Mrs Merkel was some 14 points ahead of Mr Schulz in opinion polls before the debate.

The 24-year-old has already scored four goals in all competitions for United, which includes three goals in the Premier League.

Rooney - who is United's leading all-time scorer with 253 goals - left Old Trafford for a return to boyhood side Everton on July 9 and spoke in-depth about his 13-year stay at the Manchester club. Obviously in the cups United did well.

And Saha, who similarly donned shirts for United and the Toffees, thinks there's more to come from the influential target man.

"He [Van Gaal] got a lot of stick". I could see where Jose was going with the team and they will be a big success'.

Rooney himself has offered an apology for his behaviour, though quite if that will be good enough personally or professionally remains to be seen. "I think the one thing he did was keep the standards with the players, he was demanding the best from you every day".
