Former Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney says “everybody from the staff to the kit-men” was unhappy amid Jose Mourinho‘s reign at Old Trafford.
Jose Mourinho was dismissed following two-and-half years reign at Old Trafford on Tuesday with club legend Ole Gunnar Solskjaer introduced to man the fort until the end of the season.
The Norwegian wasted no time getting the Red Devils back to business with United turning in a magnificent performance in whipping Cardiff 5-1 on Saturday, a goal margin that was recorded since Sir Alex Fergusson farewell game.
Sources at the club claim spirits have been raised since the 55-year-old’s departure with Jesse Lingard and Marcus Rashford – both on the scoresheet on Saturday – hailing the “positive changes” made by Solskjaer “Baby Face” in control.
Speaking during his appearance as a pundit on BT Sport, Rooney resounded those suppositions.
Everyone from the staff to the kit-men, they weren’t enjoying it. You can see the staff are happy today and the players are too,” he said.
He continued: “The lads played with a lot of energy, enjoyment and excitement.
“When you’ve got confidence, you put yourselves in positions to score goals. That’s what we did. We were playing higher and the full-backs were higher. We pinned them back and created a lot of chances.”
