Rooney and van Persie send Januzaj messages of support

by Sam Peoples

Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie have both praised Adnan Januzaj following his performance against Sunderland at the weekend.

Nobody expected the 18-year-old to have the match winning impact that he did and it was enough to throw him firmly into the limelight in the midst of contract negotiations with the club.

Rooney knows all about making an impressive full debut for United having scored a hat-trick against Fenerbahce on his own debut and van Persie made his debut for Feyenoord at the age of 17. Both have since gone on to have superb careers.

There is nobody better placed to show Januzaj the fruits of hard work and the success that can be achieved at United (so long as Rooney doesn’t give Januzaj too much in depth career advice about United).
