Wayne Rooney sends message to Man United fans about Jose Mourinho
Wayne Rooney is tipping Jose Mourinho to be a big success at Manchester United
Wayne Rooney is backing Jose Mourinho to bring success back to Manchester United.
The Portuguese coach was appointed as the club’s new manager back in May 2016 and has already had a positive impact at Old Trafford.
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 also won the EFL Cup in Mourinho’s first campaign in charge at the club last season.
The Red Devils have made a flying start to the new campaign, with Manchester United having won all three of their opening games and scoring 10 goals without reply in the process.
And former Manchester United striker Rooney, who rejoined Everton in the summer, is backing Mourinho to be a big hit at Old Trafford.
Speaking in an interview with talkSPORT, Rooney said: “Jose came in and last season in the league we struggled and weren’t consistent enough.
“Obviously in the cups United did well. I could see where Jose was going with the team and they will be a big success.”
Manchester United return to Premier League action after the international break with a trip to the bet365 Stadium to take on Stoke City.
They have notched up wins over West Ham, Swansea and Leicester so far.
The Red Devils have not won the Premier League since Sir Alex Ferguson’s final campaign in charge in the 2012-13 season.
