Rooney Claims Players Are Ready To Impress New Manager

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has claimed that the players are ready to impress new manager Louis van Gaal, who recently took charge of the managerial duties at the club. The Dutchman was appointed as a replacement for David Moyes, who left the role just four matches before the end of last campaign. The 62-year-old from the back of an impressive World Cup tournament with the Dutch national team during which several of his tactical decisions were praised by pundits and fans alike.

Rooney Under Fire From English Press

Wayne Rooney is being hammered in the English media by some of the pundits of the game for his two outings in the FIFA World Cup 2014, but, there are some people who are supporting him as well.

The Holland skipper Robin Van Persie defended his Manchester United teammate in an interview given to a TV Channel last night.

Rooney Announced For England

Wayne Rooney was not surprisingly included in Roy Hodgson’s list of players that he will be taking with him to Brazil for the 2014 World Cup. The Manchester United player missed out from the last 3 matches of the Premier League as he picked up a groin injury and had to rest during the last phases of the season.

ROONEY BACKS GIGGS

Wayne Rooney reckons that Ryan Giggs is a suitable man to be appointed as the next Red Devils manager.

Giggs is currently in charge at Old Trafford, but, only temporarily as the Manchester United board is believed to be looking for an experienced man for the job.

However, United’s start under Giggs was brilliant yesterday as they thrashed Norwich City by 4-0 with Rooney and Mata scoring a couple of goals each.

6TH HOME DEFEAT

Manchester United suffered their 6th home defeat when playing against Manchester City and when the match concluded, Wayne Rooney went on saying that one of the reasons on why things have taken such a turn in this season is because the opposition they face in Old Trafford are simply not scared of playing anymore.

MATA BRINGS HOPE

Juan Mata’s arrival to Manchester United has not only given the fans of the club a glimpse of hope that Moyes might just be able to finish this Premier League campaign in the top 5 spots and hopefully secure a spot in the Champions League of the next season.

Unfortunately for Manchester United, Juan Mata’s introduction at the club has not made the initial spark that everyone was wishing for. During the 1st match that Van Persie, Juan Mata and Wayne Rooney played together in the same starting lineup for David Moyes, they suffered a 2-1 defeat against Stoke City.

ROONEY OUT

A recurrent groin strain forced Wayne Rooney on sitting out during Manchester United’s match against Norwich City and despite having neither Wayne Rooney nor Robin van Persie available for David Moyes, they still managed to claim a triumph over Norwich without having their star forwards.

It is believed that Moyes also asked the medical staff of the team to speed up the recovery with the Dutchman van Persie and while the injury of Rooney would be better off with the English forward resting for a few weeks, Moyes wants him to be back against Tottenham on the 1st of January of 2014.

MOYES BACKS ROO

The manager of Manchester United, David Moyes, has said that Wayne Rooney will eventually be able to become the all time leading goal scorer for Manchester United and England.

Currently, Sir Bobby Charlton holds both those records, but, Rooney is pretty close to him.

Sir Bobby scored a total of 249 goals for Manchester United, Rooney has already got 202. As far as international football is concerned, Rooney’s strike in England’s last World Cup qualifying game against Poland took his goal tally to 38 and now, he is only 11 goals behind Sir Bobby.

Fans to decide Wayne Rooney future

England striker Wayne Rooney will decide his future at Manchester United by assessing the reaction of the home fans. The England talisman, who has been linked with a move away from the club throughout the summer, will leave it to the fans and the kind of reaction he gets from them in the next two matches before deciding whether to quit the club for greener pastures.

Mourinho calm over pursuit of Wayne Rooney

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho expressed his satisfaction after his side hammered a select Indonesia XI 8-1 with almost none of his first team players on show on Thursday.

Following the win, Chelsea will return to London for the remainder of their pre-season training with no new development on their pursuit of Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney for whom the Blues have already had a bid rejected, believed to be around £ 20 million.
