Wayne Rooney has taken to social media to thank Manchester United’s fans in China for their support during the club’s pre-season tour.

The United captain is currently away on tour with his club as they continue their preparations for their first season under Jose Mourinho.

The Red Devils lost 4-1 to Borussia Dortmund on Friday afternoon as they struggled in their second game under Mourinho.

However, Rooney was clearly feeling the love from the Manchester United fans as he signed autographs after the game.

Rooney posted the picture above on his personal Instagram account and wrote: “Great to meet the fans in China. Thanks for your support.”

The United skipper linked up with his team-mates last week after being granted an extended summer holiday by his club following his involvement in Euro 2016 with England.

United finished fifth and won the FA Cup under Louis van Gaal last season.
