Ron not right says Roo
Derby boss Wayne Rooney has contradicted fellow Manchester United legend Cristiano Ronaldo – by insisting the club should be winning titles.
Rooney and Ronaldo spent five years playing together at United and won a raft of silverware, such as three Premier League titles and the 2008 Champions League.
Many though that the five-time Ballon d’Or winner’s return to Old Trafford would bring the club back to its former glory but the Red Devils are still languishing.
The Portugal captain claimed United need to be a top-three side at worst, but Rooney insists the Manchester giants should be “top-one team”.
The record United scorer also piled pressure on interim manager Ralf Rangnick insisting he still needs to find a way to win trophies.
Rooney said: “Manchester United have to be a top-one team, not top three.
“That’s the demands which the fans put on you, the demands that the club has.
“Of course, they’re going through a difficult period but, make no mistake, that’s a club that has to be winning championships.
“It has to be winning trophies and that’s the pressure with coming and playing or working for Manchester United.
“That’s the level they need to be back to. I’m sure they’ll do the right things to get them back to that place.”
