Jose Mourinho Press Conference Previewing Everton FC UCL Match

Jose Mourinho Press Conference Previewing Everton FC UCL Match”

He wanted to play more than he did [last season].

Lukaku, 24, went the opposite direction, joining United for a fee which could rise to £90m, but despite scoring six goals in as many appearances, Mourinho explained why his new No 9 will find it hard to match Rooney's 253-goal haul.

Everton have struggled to score goals without the Belgium worldwide, with their two in four Premier League games both having been scored by Rooney.

"He's clearly one of the most important players in Manchester United's history and I think the stadium will show him that respect he deserves".

Although Rooney's influence on the pitch faded with time, he was a vital member of the Alex Ferguson side who won the Champions League in 2008 as well as three Premier League titles.

Rooney left Old Trafford to return to his boyhood club in the summer after 13 seasons at United.

'We have players and we have players waiting for an opportunity because we start the season really well with one match per week, no need for resting, changes, ' he said.

It's not just about the striker, said Mourinho.

"I think that Romelu has a better team than Zlatan had". We couldn't be happier (with him).

Last December Marouane Fellaini clumsily gifted former club Everton the penalty that allowed them to snatch a 1-1 draw at Goodison Park - something that led some sections of the Old Trafford faithful to jeer him in United's next home match.

Manchester United fans probably anxious when Paul Pogba was injured during their Champions League win over Basel, but the player who came on and replaced him, Marouane Fellaini, had a brilliant game and was key to the United win.

Jose Mourinho's men were once again ominous going forward against Stoke City last weekend but individual mistakes at the back cost them two points. He is still a great player, a great personality, and I am lucky I have played with him. Will he be on the bench on Sunday? No.

Manchester United are aiming to challenge for the Premier League title this season after their disappointing sixth-placed finish last term.

It's just being pragmatic and showing common sense.
