Rooney knows where Man Utd will be looking to strengthen in summer

Rooney knows where Man Utd will be looking to strengthen in summer

The 18-year-old also impressed playing for the Netherlands Under-21 side and he clearly has a great future ahead of him.

"The decline in atmosphere is by no means limited to Old Trafford".

It will be hard, but with the experience of Mourinho, the players we have and our reputation, we know that we can stand toe-to-toe with any team in European football. His affection for Portugal and its national team still runs deep today, to the extent that he admits he will be supporting the Portuguese should Russian Federation be knocked out.

"The kid is having a hell of an experience at every level, so an unbelievable future waits for him and being surrounded by these players can only help him. This for me is very important, for me it is a child's dream, and now I will do everything to fulfil this dream". "United have Paul Pogba who could potentially be as good as them, but then Nemanja Matic is more defensive, so it is just that creative area where City have got the upper hand", said Giggs, who serves as manager of the Wales national team.

"I would like to see him in a 4-3-3 with Matic sitting, Herrera to the right and Pogba to the left, with a selection of the front three thriving off more creativity behind them". This seems a little harsh; the Belgian already has 19 goals in all competitions and is somewhat hindered by Mourinho's defence-minded approach in big games.


"When I first came into the team there were two places for three players - me, Lee Sharpe and Andrey Kanchelskis".

Indeed, whilst Manchester United's defence has been a real strength, their attack, though significantly better than last season, still has its shortcomings.

Mourinho has previously admitted he fears Fellaini could leave Old Trafford, with the 30-year-old revealing in December that he was mulling over whether or not to remain at United. But United are the best of the rest, which is a position the supporters craved when finishing seventh and winning nothing with David Moyes.

The statement read: "We note our manager's further comments regarding the poor atmosphere within Old Trafford following the Huddersfield home game".
