Jose Mourinho predicts a bold claim about Wayne Rooney

Jose Mourinho hopes to see Wayne Rooney at United in any kind of role in future.


Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has made a bold claim that he assumes club legend Wayne Rooney will one-day return to Old Trafford after completion of his playing career.

The 31-year-old left Manchester United in this Summer window as the United’s all-time top scorer following a 13-year spell at United after joining from his childhood club Everton from where he left Goodison Park as a youngster.

Rooney showed up only 25 times, mostly as subs in all rivalries last season as a result of the inclusion of striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic and it, in the long run, drove the retired England international to end his renowned career at Manchester United for more game time somewhere else.

The Red Devils hero as of late returned to his Old club in Everton pullover a weekend ago in their Premier League match where they lost 4-0 and after the match, while talking about Rooney, Mourinho anticipated that he wants to see Wayne Rooney returning to Manchester United in future and expressed gratitude toward the Old Trafford fans for giving their legend a warm applause when he was substituted in the 82nd moment after a decent execution.

“It’s the nature of English fans, it’s the nature of big clubs when the player is big in the club and is an important part of the club history,” he said of the ovation Rooney received.

“Every club in England does that. I can only speak by Stamford Bridge and Old Trafford but in both stadiums when we got former important players the reception is normally phenomenal. No surprise at all. 

“He’s at home and I believe that one day he will be back home,” he added.

Manchester United are at present flying high in this season and just lost points from an away match at the Bet365 stadium. United have scored 15 goals in 5 league matches and conceded just twice meanwhile.
