Following his departure from Old Trafford this summer, former United captain Wayne Rooney has backed £90m signing Romelu Lukaku for success.
Romelu Lukaku has scored three goals in the opening three matches of the Premier League after his move from Everton, and Rooney, who went in the opposite direction, is convinced the Red Devils are in good hands.
‘For that United side, he is the perfect player’, Rooney said in an exclusive interview with talkSPORT. ‘He is powerful, quick and strong and he scores goals, so certainly will improve that team’, he added.
The 24-year-old Belgian got off to a flying start under Jose Mourinho, who has also been lauded by the former England international.
‘Jose came in and last season in the league we struggled and weren’t consistent enough’, Rooney said. ‘Obviously in the cups United did well. I could see where Jose was going with the team and they will be a big success’.
