Wayne Rooney Warns Manchester United

Wayne Rooney has reiterated the opinion of former manager Jose Mourinho by stating that Manchester United players need to work harder. In his declaration, he went on to say that the performance of the football team in the last few weeks had fallen behind, and it was thus necessary that players take responsibility in the matter and play their part. Rooney made these remarks about his former teammates following his win over Chicago Fire. It was at a time that rumors were rife regarding Mourinho facing a sack over the weekend. Manchester United then went ahead to beat Newcastle 3-2.

Rooney stated that the poor results were a reminder of the challenges that the team had undergone when Louis van Gaal was at the helm. In his opinion, the manager did his best to prepare the team for the matches ahead, but when the time came, the team was unable to produce satisfactory results on the field.

He noted that though Jose was under fire for the team’s performance, it was up to the football team to pick up the slack and work on bringing more wins home. It was his opinion that a manager can only do so much without reciprocation from the team and thus it was important that players work with the manager in a bid to get better results.

He attributed the recent results to the club being young and under pressure. In his times, Rooney stated, he had a lot of senior players who helped guide him through the journey, which is not the case with the current team. He, however, stated that players needed to stop taking in what people had to say on social media and to focus on what their manager and teammates had to say. It is only in this way that the team can improve their stats in the sport.

Among his competitors for the title were his teammate James Roby and John Bateman, a forward for Wigan. It was not entirely clear whether he would emerge the winner in the competition, seeing as he had been unable to steer St Helens to the grand final which featured Wigan and Warrington. However, his successes in the matches saw him walk away with the title which he truly deserved.

It was in September that St Helens released a statement that they would let Barba leave them a year before his contract came to an end. This move was in a bid to enable the player to take up a promising deal in Australia. As at now, Ben stands as the second rugby player in the history of the league to take up two of the best accolades. He had previously won Australia’s Dally M Medal. The only other player who has achieved such heights in his career is Gavin Miller.

The award ceremony also featured the Woman of Steel title which went to Georgia Roche. It was also then that Shaun Wayne got recognition as the Super League Coach of the year for the first time in his successful career. He too will be making a move from his current team to join the Scottish Rugby Union. It has been a year of many positive changes, and good things are to be expected in the times to come.
