Manchester United and England captain Wayne Rooney is delighted about the appointment of former Chelsea and Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho at Manchester United.
Jose Mourinho was appointed coach of Manchester United last week and Wayne Rooney, speaking in a press conference ahead of England’s game against Portugal had nothing but praise for the Portuguese. He said “”It’s exciting. Jose is one of the best managers in the world.He knows the Premier League really well. For myself and the other United players, it’s exciting times and I’m looking forward to it.”
Rooney, who was named England Player of the Year for 2015 earlier this week, will return for pre-season training with Mourinho in mid-July, ahead of their pre-seaon tour to China.
Mourinho was formally unveiled as Louis van Gaal’s successor at Old Trafford on Friday, ending a drawn-out process which lasted several months, and the Portuguese will begin building towards a Premier League title tilt when his players return from Euro 2016 and any subsequent summer breaks next month.
