Wayne Rooney says David Moyes is a “great manager” and deserves the chance to impress at Manchester United.

The England international scored his 200th and 201st United goals in a 4-2 victory over Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

Rooney’s future was a source of constant speculation during the summer transfer window despite Moyes insists the Red Devils forward was not for sale.

But the former Chelsea target insists he kept working hard throughout the off-season to be in peak shape for the new campaign.

“I’ve put my head down and worked hard and tried to do everything right,” Rooney told the Daily Mirror.

“I’ve tried to show the right attitude. I’ve always felt that’s a really important thing to do. That’s paying off for me on the pitch. I feel fit and ready to do well.

“I feel good. I’ve had some good training the last few weeks. It’s been stop-start with the injuries, but I’ve just kept my head down and worked hard and now I’ve played and got some goals.”

He added: “I feel great. The training is a bit different under the new manager – I remember it from Everton, it’s more intense. That’s helping me. I feel good and am glad to be out playing.

“He’s a great manager and thoroughly deserves this job because of what he did at Everton. It’s good to work under him and hopefully be successful together.”
