Manchester United captain, Wayne Rooney, is excited at the prospect of working with the new manager, Jose Mourinho, at Old Trafford.
Rooney believes the club has hired one of the game’s greatest managers in Jose Mourinho.
Mourinho was confirmed as Louis van Gaal’s replacement last week, and will be tasked with returning United to the top of English football after three years of toil under David Moyes and the flying Dutchman.
Rooney was a long-term target for Mourinho when the Portuguese was at Chelsea – with a switch close after Sir Alex Ferguson left United in 2013.
Finally under the stewardship of the two-time Champions League winner, United captain Rooney spoke in glowing terms when discussing the appointment for the first time.
“It’s exciting,” Rooney told a news conference ahead of England’s pre-Euro 2016 friendly with Portugal.
“He’s one of the best managers in the world and obviously knows the Premier League really well.
“For myself and for the other Man United players it’s exciting times so I’m looking forward to it.”
Up Man U!
