Rooney excited by attacking potential at United

Wayne Rooney believes Manchester United’s attacking prospects are good after his testimonial run-out alongside new signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

United failed to find the net as they played out a goalless draw with Rooney’s former club Everton in their final pre-season friendly at Old Trafford.

But Rooney linked well with Ibrahimovic, who was making his home debut, and the combinations with fellow forwards Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial were also promising as the team continued its re-tuning under new boss Jose Mourinho.

Rooney told BT Sport: “I think that will come with time, in the next few weeks when you’re getting your full fitness.

“I think tonight was a little step forward. A few of the lads felt a bit sharper.

“In the first half we opened them up at times and the rotation was there between players, little combinations.

“It was a decent performance at times. We could have scored a couple of goals. We’ll take positives from it and try to build on them.”
