Mourinho: Rooney is a true legend
Manchester United coach Jose Mourinho gives praise to Wayne Rooney, and considers the player as a true legend.
The 31-year-old striker decided to move from Old Trafford in the transfer market this season. It also ended the 13-year bond of cooperation that has been woven by both parties, and ahead of the reunion match against Everton, Mourinho believes that the Red Devils fans will give a warm welcome to the players.
“I think he will get a decent welcome [from our fans],” the Portuguese man told reporters.
“I think sometimes the word legend, too considered crumbs here. It does not apply to him. He is a true legend.
“Seeing the number of goals and the number of trophies he won, he is definitely one of the most important players in Manchester United’s history, and I think fans who are present at the stadium will show respect for him.
“I hope they do that, before and after the game. Not when the game lasts. “
