Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney was speaking yesterday about Manchester United and expressed optimism over Manchester United chances in the league as he stated that he believes that his side have overcome the hardest part of a transitional period.
Manchester United went through three managers in four months in the beginning of 2014 after David Moyes was sacked and Ryan Giggs took over as interim manager before the announcement of Loius Van Gaal on a three year deal. Van Gaal managed to lead Manchester United to a fourth place finish much higher than the 7th place of the 2013/2014 season which saw Manchester United miss out on the UEFA champions league this season. Wayne Rooney is of the opinion that Van Gaal’s team is starting to play well and believed his side can once again dominate English football. “I honestly believe we will go far next year and won’t be far off challenging for the league,” Rooney said on his official website. “If you look at the first 10 to 11 games we only had around 13 points, and if you look at where we finished I think it shows we could have been up there with a better start” Manchester United have already brought in Memphis Depay and are looking to do more business in the coming weeks
For Manchester United, next season is a make or break season as they can either improve or implode.
