Asked to offer Lukaku some words of advice, Rooney said: “There are standards that you have to keep when you are at Manchester United. “That came from the manager Sir Alex Ferguson when I went to United and it was then passed down through the dressing room by the likes of Giggsy, Gary Neville and Scholesy.
“Over the last few years, it was down to me and Michael Carrick to keep the new players maintaining those standards. “That became more difficult over the last few years, with some of the players who joined the club. There are traditions at United that have to be maintained. It’s become harder, but that’s not my problem any more. I’m just ecstatic to be back at Everton.
The fornicate nerve of him to speak about maintaining standards
What desperately poor and pathetic comments you lot are making
"Wayne Rooney will get respect if he joins this board"
"The nerve of him to talk about maintaining standards"
In 50 years time this man will STILL be in the record books as our all time leading goalscorer and the winner of MANY important trophies for this club
If the Glazers are still in charge of this club then we will probably consider winning the under 16's league a major trophy and the Glazers will be the richest family in the world
By then the entire family might have attended possibly 100 games
Sp please let us quote Rooney correctly eh
Not part quote nor a manipulative quote that suits to try to prove the impossible
What Rooney said was
"PLAYING for Manchester United is a test of character as well as your ability.You have got to be strong enough mentally to accept the challenge"(The emphasis is on the word "playing")
"United are a football club which demands success.Romelu has to be strong enough to take that challenge.If he does that,then with the ability he's got then it will be a success.If he doesn't,if he worries about things then it will be more difficult"(I personally think those are wise,words from somebody who has won,several times everything you can win)
How many of the new todger bashers like Zlatan,Schweinster,Depay,Mata,Herrara,Lukaku etc etc etc say anything about winning anything importabt for MANCHESTER UNITED??
"There are standards that you have to keep when you are at Manchester United.That obviously came from the manager Sir Alex when i went to United"
"And it was passed down by the likes of Giggsy,Gary and Scholesy.Over the last few years it was down to me and Michael Carrick to keep the new players maintaining standards"
"That has been more difficult over the last few years with some of the players who joined the club.But that's not my problem anymore"
Again i think these are very wise words
He appears to have made the point that when he joined there was a host of players of top top quality,at the peak of their game who could win things with and for the club
Over the years they have not been replaced other than with old or knackered shirt sellers like Falcao,Schweinsteiger,Di Maria and Zlatan,as examples
The result is that this is just now a team of mercenaries led by mercenary owners
Only Carrick of the old guard of top winners left and this will be his last season
If you think this team is capable of winning or getting close to winning the Premier League or the Champions League you can go and audition for La la land 2 whilst United are still in Hollywood
I would not diss Wazza if i was you Sandies as you are likely to need the memories of his goals till the day you die before you get any more top quality success
