As we all know, Manchester United hired Jose Mourinho over the summer, with the hope that he’ll bring the glory days back to the Theatre of Dreams. The Red Devils have made a steady start under his guidance, and the players seem to be enjoying life with him at the helm.
His captain is Wayne Rooney, who is obviously in good spirits fresh off becoming Manchester United’s record goalscorer with 250 strikes in the famous jersey. Now, the 31-year-old has been talking to the media about what it takes to succeed in a Jose team.
“I think he knows what he wants from the players, and the players know what the manager wants from them.” Wayne Rooney is quoted as saying by the Manchester Evening News.
“He’s strong in that sense but as long as you’re doing what he wants, then I’m sure you’ll be fine.”
“I think you can see he has got a winning mentality – not that we didn’t have that already, but he’s certainly reminded us of that.”
Rooney is a player who has been used rather sparingly recently, but he still seems to be enjoying his time under Jose. What he says is rather simple but so effective, Mourinho builds his team on playing efficient football, and if every individual does their job – success as a team will undoubtedly happen.
The United captain also disccusses that winning mentality. This is something that we as a club have been built upon, and it did feel like that diminished over the last few years. However, under our new boss, you can feel a certain aura and presence about our team returning.
