Mourinho: It was easy to let Rooney leave

The former England global heads back to Old Trafford as the club's all-time leading scorer, having struck 253 goals during a 13-year stint. I think sometimes the word "legend" in this country comes too easily.

And Mourinho expects the United faithful to recognise his achievements - but just hopes they don't give him too much encouragement during the game.

"That's not the case here".

"He's a real legend of the club".

"The number of appearances, the number of goals, the number of trophies".

The Portuguese manager once again expressed his view that Rooney, United's all-time record goalscorer, should be regarded as a United legend, but immediately stressed that he is an Everton player now who will want to beat them on Sunday, as reported by the Guardian.

Of course, United's upcoming match will see Lukaku play against his former club for the first time, but Lingard does not believe facing his old team-mates will faze the no.9.

Meanwhile, Ronald Koeman has warned Everton's players their former colleague Romelu Lukaku's purple patch will continue if they do not improve defensively at Old Trafford. I think the stadium will show him the respect he deserves. "He's come in and already scored a lot of goals for us, so we know what he's about".

"I mentioned several times last season he's a great finisher".

"I'm sure he'll be looking forward to it and the United fans will be looking forward to seeing how he does as well, hoping he doesn't score and Wayne the opposite, hoping he does score". Luke Shaw came to United with a lot of promise and potential but is yet to fulfil his potential at Old Trafford after suffering series of injuries since moving to the Theatre of dreams.

"If we defend how we've defended in the last few games then maybe it will be his afternoon".
