Rooney believes his team have been underperforming since the start of the season.
"Obviously, the manager is under a bit of pressure and we know as a team it's us who have let him down," Rooney told several British newspapers.
"We have to pull together for the manager and show the sort of fight we have done here and we'll be fine. We need to do better for him than we have been."
He also moved on to praise the manager’s decision in fielding Adnan Januzaj in the first team, especially with a double on his debut which saved United from misery and give them a much needed win on Saturday.
"It's great the manager has thrown him into the side, especially with what has happened in the last few games. There was big pressure on us, but the manager has trusted him and he has repaid that.”
"He's very confident, that's great to see. A lot of the young players who come through are a little bit timid and shy, but he looks comfortable and he's confident in his own ability, which you need to be.”
"It was a brave move to play him in the circumstances and we're delighted it's paid off. There is a lot of pressure, but he seems to thrive on it. We know the ability he has got, but you never know how they are going to react when they are thrown into games.”
"We need to help the younger players and if we do that, there'll be moments where they come in and win us the game, as has happened here.
"The experienced lads need to help them emerge into a team."
