The legend of the Red Devils thinks that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will lead the club to its first domestic crown in eight years.
United returned to the top of the EPL table beating Fulham 2-1 at Craven Cottage on Wednesday night. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side fell behind after Ademola Lookman opened the score for the hosts after just five minutes, but Cavani tapped in an equaliser 16 minutes later after Cottagers keeper Alphonse Areola mishandled a Fernandes cross his way.
Club legend Rooney, who has just begun his own career as a manager at Derby, thinks that Solskjaer has the squad at his disposal to recieve the top prize for English football in May, and has praised Fernandes, Cavani and Pogba for the effect they had on the team’s exciting run to the top of the table.
“In the last few years, Manchester United haven’t been ready to challenge for the title. But now they’ve built a strong of players,” Rooney told Sky Sports.
“[Bruno] Fernandes coming in has helped massively. [Edinson] Cavani, with that winning mentality, has helped massively. Now the squad is challenging for a Premier League title.
“Paul Pogba will have a massive part to play in that. They’ve brought players in with winning mentalities and now Paul can do what he does best and show his quality on the pitch.”
