Rooney adamant Man United can still be successful
WAYNE Rooney has promised that Manchester United’s current squad will be successful despite their sluggish start to the season and has questioned those who have written Louis van Gaal’s team off after a 5-3 defeat at Leicester, where they had led 3-1.
The United captain responded to his team’s critics via his Facebook profile on Tuesday night, saying that the quality in the dressing room matched with Louis van Gaal’s “unbelievable attention to detail” will lead to better days ahead.
“There seems to be a lot of people who have written us off because of Sundays result but I don’t see it that way,” Rooney wrote on his Facebook page.
Television footage during the defeat at the Kingpower Stadium, the first time United had lost having led by two goals in the Premier League, showed Rooney berating his team-mates but the 28-year-old added: “When I look around our dressing room and see the quality we have and the manager’s unbelievable attention to detail I have no doubts this team will be successful.”
ManU, who face West Ham next, are in 12th place on five points after five games. The 4-0 victory at home to QPR remains their solitary win, while Rooney has found the net twice. – theguardian.com
