The Englishman played his testimonial against Everton at Old Trafford on Wednesday night to mark his 12-season career at Man United.
He showed plenty of positive signs and many supporters picked up on his superb link up with Ibrahimovic throughout the entire game.
Here’s what fans had to say.
Rooney and Zlatan understanding is already too nice

While both played relatively deep throughout the game, their quick passing and ability on the ball indicated that they’d be a big threat up front this season. Looking ahead to the Bournemouth game which opens our Premier League season, it’d be a smart idea to place a bet with a promo code on the pair being involved in a goal because United have such strong attacking options this year.
He received a well deserved guard of honour as he entered the pitch and could be set for a big season as Mourinho hinted Rooney would be his main man at Old Trafford.
Rooney came off seven minutes into the second-half as Mourinho looked let Rooney enjoy a massive send off on his big night and rest his captain for the Premier League fixture against Bournemouth.
