Rooney Excited With United’s Summer Recruits
An eager Wayne Rooney has shared his views on new Manchester United signing Shinji Kagawa and seems optimistic their understanding on the pitch will be evident when the season kicks off next week.
Speaking after United came back from two goals down to win 4-3 against Hannover in a pre-season friendly yesterday, and scoring two goals himself, Rooney was quick to praise the Red Devils new midfield man.
“It was end-to-end and we were a bit sloppy at times. We could have done better defending,” the 26-year-old forward told MUTV.
“But I thought some of the play throughout the game was great. Some great link-up play between us.
“We’ve got the four goals which maybe we were lacking in pre-season and it’s great to get them with the season coming up.”
Asked if he enjoyed linking up with Kagawa, Rooney said: “It was great. Obviously he’s a very clever player.
“The likes of himself, Chicharito and Tom (Cleverley) – there are players capable of getting on the ball and linking the play and it worked well for us tonight.”
