ROONEY FINALLY SET TO PLAY UNDER MOURINHO

English International, Wayne Rooney is finally set to pay under Jose Mourinho at Manchester United as the Portuguese tactician will be announced soon as the third coach since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson in 2013.

When he finally takes charge at Manchester United, Jose Mourinho will have a whole host of problems to sort out.

Rooney could play key role for England

Many fans and pundits have been quick to write off Wayne Rooney’s chances of playing a part for England at Euro 2016, with the Manchester United star not hitting the same heights as in previous years. A recent two month lay-off due to a knee injury may have denied Rooney the opportunity to convince his doubters that he still has the quality to make a real impact in France, but Roy Hodgson has adamantly stated that the nation’s captain is an integral part of his squad due to his leadership qualities and the array of skills he brings to the table.

The staunch backing received from his manager would suggest that Rooney will not only be part of the 23-man squad that travels to Euro 2016 in the hope of surpassing their darkhorse tag with Bookies.com, but also be the leading figure that England need when they walk out onto the pitch.

Rooney believes that winning the FA Cup can lead United to a new era

Manchester United made their way through the finals of the FA Cup after having defeated Everton with a scoreboard of 2-1 and they are now one step closer of sealing the piece of silverware that Manchester United has not won since the season of 2003-04.

Louis van Gaal and his men are now in the finals of the English competition and will be facing off with Crystal Palace on May 21. Wayne Rooney is certain that if his team is able to win this competition and become the new champions of the FA Cup, it can push Manchester United to a title winning generation of young players.

Wayne Rooney is certain that there are enough rising stars in Manchester United that can guide the Premier League club to a period of time where they only win competitions and add pieces of silverware to their collection.

BLIND BACKS TEAMMATE ROONEY

The Three Lions and The Red Devils skipper, Wayne Rooney has received varying degrees of support and criticism regarding his recent run of games, with many questioning his relevance in both teams.

The embattled striker has only 7 goals to his name this season and is set to return after a knee injury. His record of not picking up instantly upon return from injury adds salt to injury.

Team-mate, Daley Blind has risen in his defense. Blind told reporters that: “When he is fit you are definitely going to need him he brings something special to the team. He is exceptional. He has exceptional qualities and can make something better. For me, it is not even a question.”

The star striker has been available for Manchester United in the last month. His last appearance was in the 2-1 loss against Sunderland in the middle of February. He has been unable to play because of a knee injury. In his absence, United have made some good progress in the league table and have recently confirmed this with a derby win against Manchester City. 18-year-old striker Marcus Rashford scored the only goal of the game in the 1-0 win.

RED CARD COSTS UNITED

The Dutch coach of Manchester United, Louis van Gaal was clearly frustrated about the defeat that his team suffered against West Bromwich Albion and after the match reached it’s end, it didn’t take long for Louis van Gaal to voice his thoughts about what happened in the game and he believes that the crucial moment of the entire game was Juan Mata’s dismissal after having received his 2nd yellow card in the first half.

The Manchester United striker is entering into a great phase in his career. Even though he has struggled to score goals regularly under the regime of Louis Van Gaal, he is starting to prove his worth by providing some important goals for the team. At 30 years of age, he will also be aware that the Euro 2016 could be his last opportunity to make a major impact at an international tournament. So far, Rooney has failed to deceive in the previous major tournaments.

Once Manchester United were regarded as the epic tome of attacking football when it comes to the Premier League.

The failure to score goals has been the club go on a run of five matches without a win in all competitions.

Phil Jones believes that people should not just look up to Wayne Rooney

Manchester United defender Phil Jones believes that people should not just look up to Wayne Rooney as a striker whose main job is to score goals.

Instead, he sees several good qualities within the former Everton striker that would help the team in several aspects. Jones was speaking ahead of the international friendly matches for England. After having comfortably qualified for the Euro 2016, the team will be looking to march ahead in style by winning the friendly matches as well. These matches also provide manager Roy Hodgson with the option of testing out some new players.

Wayne Rooney has been disappointing of late with new signing Anthony Martial

Wayne Rooney has been disappointing of late with new signing Anthony Martial already grabbing the headlines with three Premier League goals from just two games.

Rooney is yet to open his account in the league this season and this is despite playing in more than 450 minutes so far. He has been much more prolific in other competitions. His best performances, though, have been with the England national team. He has seven goals in just eight games for the England team and this has seen him become the record goal scorer for the national team. His position in Louis van Gaal’s team has been subjected to much debate.
