Wayne Rooney speaks about the flawless signing for Manchester United

The big Belgian has scored three times for the Red Devils in United's first three Premier League contests.

Rooney added: "Jose came in and last season in the league we struggled and weren't consistent enough".

Wayne Rooney claims Romelu Lukaku is the "perfect player" for Manchester United and the Everton star believes the addition of the Belgium worldwide will improve Jose Mourinho's side.

United are now top of the Premier League after winning their opening three games and Rooney, who is the Red Devils' highest goalscorer after spending 13 years at the club, believes Mourinho will lead his former side to a successful season.

Wayne Rooney has described Romelu Lukaku as "the flawless player" for Manchester United, based on their current tactical setup.

Both have shined on the pitch so far (Rooney less so off of it), with Lukaku smashing in three Premier League goals to Rooney's two.

"He is powerful, quick and strong and he scores goals, so certainly will improve that team".

And former Manchester United striker Rooney, who rejoined Everton in the summer, is backing Mourinho to be a big hit at Old Trafford. His first campaign at Old Trafford, above anything, revolved around clearing up the debris left by Louis van Gaal and engendering a more direct, penetrative style.

Former Manchester United star Van Nistelrooy said: "Harry Kane to me looks like a great professional, somebody who works hard to get the maximum out of himself". Obviously in the cups United did well. I believe if he stayed it would have got better.
