Wayne Rooney has spoken of his excitement at the appointment of Jose Mourinho as Manchester United manager.

He’s one of the best managers in the world. It’s an exciting time for Manchester United. He knows the Premier League very well and I’m looking forward to it [working with Mourinho].

Rooney didn’t play very well for England in their 1-0 win over Portugal, although is excited to be fully fit for an international tournament, after going in to so many on the back of injuries.

It’s a proud moment to captain the team heading into a tournament. It’s a young squad but it has got a lot of quality. I’m injury-free, whereas in a lot of tournaments I’ve had little niggles. I’m happy with my fitness and form.
