Former Manchester United player and current Derby County manager Wayne Rooney shares his thoughts about Manchester United.

Rooney has done an exceptional job at his current team Derby County. Wayne Rooney thinks the signing of Cristiano Ronaldo “hasn’t worked”. Mauricio Pochettino is the better choice for Manchester United than Erik ten Hag, according to Wayne Rooney.

“It’s been a strange season,” Rooney told Sky Sports speaking on Monday Night Football. “I’ve been to the ground to watch them live a few times and they look like a team of individuals. When they make a mistake it always looks very difficult for them to recover as a team.

“I think Pochettino has done it in the Premier League,” Rooney said. “He knows the Premier League and at Tottenham he brought a lot of players through. He did it at Southampton as well.”

“If I’m choosing from one of the two, that’s who I’d choose. He would need to be given time to place his blueprint on the club and on the team. If you give him time, I think he’d do well.” Rooney added.
