Roo says José has Devils up

CONFIDENT: United's Wayne Rooney

Wayne Rooney believes Jose Mourinho has reignited Manchester United and can win the Premier League title.

The 30-year-old forward, who secured his fifth league title with the club the last time they won it in 2013, scored eight top-flight goals last season as United finished fifth and failed to qualify for the Champions League.

Mourinho has brought in striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, midfielder Henrikh Mkhityaran and defender Eric Bailly and according to local media reports, have been negotiating with Juventus over the transfer of Paul Pogba.

And Roo says the Red Devils will be on fire when the season kicks off in two weeks time.

“I think the players feel this is more like the old Manchester United.

“It’s not just the new signings, we’ve got Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford from last season who made such an impact.

“We’re in a very good spot now, we think we can challenge for the Premier League, and we want to put a marker down, in the Community Shield with Leicester.

“I know it’s a one-off game, but we want to show we can win a trophy early on… we feel that’s an important event for us.”

Roo, who will line up against boyhood club Everton in his testimonial at Old Trafford tomorrow.
