Manchester United boss happy with Rooney

Published Add your comment

David Moyes says he is confident that Wayne Rooney is "mentally in good shape" going in to Manchester United's crunch game against Liverpool this weekend.

Rooney has been the subject of intense transfer speculation but is expected to remain at Old Trafford beyond the end of the summer transfer window.

The England forward, who attracted two offers from Chelsea, has since expressed his gratitude for the reception he received from the Manchester United fans during his first Premier League appearance of the season against Chelsea on Monday.

Rooney is expected to start for Manchester United at Anfield on Sunday, and Moyes was keen to sing his striker's praises before the big game.

"Wayne Rooney has been a great player for many years for Manchester United," he said.

"I felt he played very well the other night and he's looking in good condition and is mentally in good shape too."

While Rooney is expected to stay put, the Manchester United boss was still hopeful of completing some transfers of his own before Monday's deadline, with Marouane Fellaini and Leighton Baines amongst host of names linked with moves to Old Trafford.

"It might be busy in the next few days. I hope we do a little bit of business, but I couldn't guarantee that," he added.

He added: "I wouldn't disclose any names, just let the clubs deal with it and we'll try and do it on a professional manner."
