Wayne Rooney is looking forward to some pre-season action with Manchester United
Wayne Rooney took to social media to reveal his excitement ahead of Manchester United’s first pre-season game against Club America on Friday.
Louis van Gaal’s squad are currently continuing their pre-season preparations in the United States as they bid to raise their fitness levels ahead of the 2015-16 season.
And Rooney is clearly looking forward to getting some game time under his belt this week.
The Manchester United captain posted the picture above on his Instagram account on Wednesday afternoon and wrote: “Training going well. Can’t wait for the first game of the #MUtour on Friday against Club America @manchesterunited”
United begin their Premier League campaign with a home clash against Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford on the opening weekend of the season.
Rooney enjoyed a relatively successful first season under new Manchester United manager Van Gaal following the Dutchman’s appointment as David Moyes’ permanent successor last summer.
He scored 12 goals and made five assists in 33 Premier League games as he helped the Red Devils secure a top-four finish and a route into next season’s Champions League.
