Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has claimed the club still has a bright future despite their poor start to the current campaign.
The Red Devils appeared to have turned a corner when they outclassed Queens Park Rangers at Old Trafford. They secured a 4-0 win with Angel Di Maria stealing the headlines after his impressive display.
The Argentinian winger was then on hand again to score against Leicester City at the weekend as Louis van Gaal’s side took a 3-1 lead. However, they soon collapsed and succumbed to a 5-3 defeat at the King Power Stadium.
Van Gaal’s side are now 12th in the Premier League table after five matches, eight points behind current leaders Chelsea.
Despite their start, Van Gaal has claimed his side can rally to challenge for the title this season.
The Dutchman added Di Maria, Daley Blind, Radamel Falcao, Luke Shaw, Marcus Rojo and Ander Herrera to his squad in the summer and Rooney is confident they will eventually compete for silverware.
He wrote on his Facebook page: “There seems to be a lot of people who have written us off because of Sunday’s result but I don’t see it that way.
“When I look around our dressing room and see the quality we have and the manager’s unbelievable attention to detail, I have no doubts this team will be successful.”
The Red Devils return to action on Saturday against West Ham at Old Trafford and they are 1.32 to win with the draw 5.34, while the Hammers are 7.99 to claim all three points.
