Manchester United skipper Wayne Rooney said he is impressed with the additions to the team this summer by new coach Jose Mourinho.


The England international said he feels the summer transfer singings have started well under the new coach, and knows they will do well overall.

“The signings we’ve made this season have been really good signings. They’ve settled in really quickly and you’ve seen the impact they’ve had on the pitch already.

“I hope they continue and the players who have been here a while can continue to do well. If we can do that, I’m sure we can have a very good season,” the former Everton star player added.

With the high profile additions of Mourinho this summer in Eric Baily, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Paul Pogba, there are huge expectations. The total sum spent costs over £145 million, even with Ibrahimovic gotten on a free transfer deal from Paris St. Germain. Mourinho is one of the top managers, following his incredible run, and with the resources at his disposal, the Premier League title is a key expectation. The team has started the season well, claiming maximum point, ahead of their third game away against Hull City.

Rooney adds that each manager is different, but the team has been doing well to interpret the game plan of the manager when they play on the pitch. The key thing is maintaining the consistency all season, in order to win titles or go very far. On meeting his former coach Mike Phelan when they take on Hull, Rooney added: “We’ve prepared well this week, so we’re hoping that continues. Of course, in every game you play, you want to do well and try to do your best to help the team win.”
