The Englishman’s future at Old Trafford has come into question this season after he lost his automatic starter status for club and country.
However, he has allegedly been working even harder in training and scored a goal in Thursday night’s 4-0 Europa League victory over Feyenoord, registered an assist and is now only two goals away from breaking Bobby Charlton’s club-record of 249 strikes.
After pictures of him drinking into the early hours in the England team hotel after playing in his country’s win over Scotland had been printed in newspapers, he faced heavy criticism.
He labelled his treatment as disgraceful and has proven that he has much more to offer with a performance that fans have been waiting for.
Hopes are he can continue his impressive form and look to re-claim his spot back in the side in the Premier League with his brilliant new showings.
Mourinho has been delighted with Rooney’s professionalism and seems happy with his attitude to work harder and improve after he was dropped from the side earlier in the month.
