Wayne Rooney: 'Jose Mourinho is an easy target'

Wayne Rooney has thrown his support behind his embattled former manager Jose Mourinho, telling those Manchester United team-mates he once played alongside that they have under-performed in recent weeks and must take their share of the responsibility.

Mourinho would have kept his job even if Newcastle had won at Old Trafford, but his long-term future at United remains bleak.

Jose Mourinho is set to be investigated by the Football Association for comments made towards television cameras following Manchester United 3-2 win over Newcastle on Saturday. His third seasons in his second spell at Chelsea and Real Madrid also ended in acrimonious departures after poor results and falling out with key players. He took a lot of stick but behind closed doors I said to the players, "We have to be doing better".

The criticism Mourinho has received reminds Rooney of his time under the Portuguese's predecessor, Louis van Gaal.




Jokanovic said in an interview with the Times: "He's a fantastic man and I wish him all the best". So I am sure that is getting said behind the scenes now.

Rooney believes the current United side are lacking the kind of experienced figures who were at the club when he joined back in 2004. Mourinho would nearly certainly turn the matter over to his expert legal team and the Mirror says that with "built-in loyalty payments, signing fees and other agreements on top of his £14.5m-a-year annual salary, that amounts to a whopping £29m".

"The ones that read the papers, that are connected with social media, they thought maybe I had gone [been sacked]", said Mourinho on talkSPORT. Yes they want to win trophies but you don't need to win a trophy every week.
