Footballer Direct: Man. Utd Reject Negativity Following Leicester Hammering
Manchester United's Rooney has insisted that the club will be successful under van Gaal. The reds threw away a 3-1 lead at the King Power Stadium last Sunday as their disorganised defense couldn't keep up with the Premier League new-comers Leicester City.
The final score was 5-3 leaving United 12th in the league with only one win under their belts from five games. The most iconic football team in the world spent a cool £170 million during the summer transfer window but pundits are questioning whether it was money well spent.
On his personal Facebook page, Rooney wrote: "When I look around our dressing room and see the quality we have and the manager's unbelievable attention to detail, I have no doubts this team will be successful." It remains to be seen. Will they finish in the top 3 this year? Footballer Direct aren't too sure!
