Wayne Rooney lifts lid on Man United training under Jose Mourinho
Wayne Rooney explains what life is like under new Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho
Wayne Rooney has delivered a fascinating insight into what life is like for Manchester United’s players under new manager Jose Mourinho.
The Portuguese coach was appointed as the club’s new manager on a three-year contract back in May and is now preparing for his first season in charge at Old Trafford.
Mourinho takes his side to Wembley for the Community Shield clash against Leicester City on Sunday as he bids to get the campaign off to a winning start by lifting a trophy.
And Rooney has given fans an insight into what training and working under Mourinho at United has been like in the past few weeks.
Rooney is quoted as saying by the Daily Mail: “He obviously gets his message across that he wants to win but he’s not a real big shouter.
“He expects a lot of things from his players and just from him talking he’s got that aura where you know what he wants.
“At the moment he’s not shouting – you never know when the season starts, but he’s a winner.
“He wants to win, he wanted to win tonight [Rooney’s testimonial]. He reiterated that at half time.
“It’s a game where you’re playing for Manchester United and whether it’s a friendly or not you want to win.
“Unfortunately we couldn’t do that tonight but hopefully it’s a game me and my family can remember.”
United finished fifth in the Premier League last season as they missed out on qualification for the Champions League under Louis van Gaal.
The Red Devils won the FA Cup in the Dutchman’s final game in charge at Wembley back in May.
