Read What Mourinho Said About Rooney

Jose Mourinho, the manager of the Red Devils, states that Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney will remain an important figure.

The 30-year-old was used as an attacking midfielder and a secondary striker last season at Old Trafford, while Roy Hodgson used him behind the striker for England at Euro 2016.

It has been suggested that Rooney could drop further back into the midfield as the years wear on but Mourinho insists that he does not see the club captain in that role.

And now, speaking about Rooney’s future, Mourinho noted: “I am quite surprised with so many question marks around this guy”.

“The special one” continued: “I know that at the national team level you have this capacity of trying to make things complicated for yourself, so what happened around him in the summer was not a surprise for me. But in my club we are not going to have that. He is the club captain, he is the manager’s captain, he is the players’ captain.”

He stressed: “I trust him a lot. I think he’s going to be a very important player for me and no problem for him.

”However, the ManUtd boss insists that the armband does not guarantee Rooney a starting place alone: “He knows that he has to work hard, he knows that but I think that is nothing new in his career. Everything he got I see nobody offer him, he had to fight for it. With me it is not going to be different. But, yes, he is my captain.”
