Wayne Rooney believes Manchester United are ready to challenge the title under Jose Mourinho after missing out the opportunity under previous managers, David Moyes and Van Gaal.
The Red Devils have failed to live up to their reputation that they have under Ferguson ever since he retired.
Manchester United have also been struggling to be consistent and secure three points this season with their recent draw coming against Liverpool.
Jose Mourinho brought in some big signings to the club with the likes of Paul Pogba who re-joins the Red Devils on a breaking fee, and also Zlatan Ibrahimovic who used to work under Mourinho back in Inter Milan.
“I think we’ve got a great squad. I said before the season we’d be challenging, we’ve still got that belief, even stronger after working with this manager and the players over the last few months.”
“I think we’ve got a fantastic squad, who are ready and capable of challenging.”
Rooney looks set to move on from the Van Gaal era and hints out that Mourinho’s philosophy will carry United back to its glory days.
“It is a different way of playing, but I think if you’re an individual it is easy to get out of your head and learn what the manager said.” Rooney added.
