Rooney excited by Mourinho arrival

Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney has hailed the appointment of Jose Mourinho, claiming he’s “one of the best managers in the world.”

After months of furious media speculation, Mourinho was unveiled as Louis van Gaal’s successor at Old Trafford last week, penning a three-year deal with an option to extend by another 12 months.

Ahead of England’s final Euro 2016 warm-up match against Portugal at Wembley, Rooney pledged his support for ‘The Special One’ by highlighting his vast experience and talent.

“It’s exciting. Jose is one of the best managers in the world,” The Three Lions striker said.

“He knows the Premier League really well. For myself and the other United players, it’s exciting times and I’m looking forward to it.”
