Wayne Rooney reveals the "strange" mentality change he noticed at Man Utd

Wayne Rooney has revealed the noticeable changes at Manchester United from when he was player at the historic club to now.

The Red Devils legend joined the Old Trafford club as a teenager back in 2004, signing under Sir Alex Ferguson – a man who didn’t suffer fools gladly.

After 13 years he finally left, staying during the short spells in which David Moyes was in charge before Louis van Gaal took over and then current boss Jose Mourinho.

Rooney spent one more season in the Premier League with his boyhood club Everton before relocating to the United States to represent DC United.

The 33-year-old recently spoke out about how things have changed at United since the early Ferguson days to this new era.

And reveals he found certain changes “strange”.

“I’ve always turned my phone off before I went into the dressing room for games,” Rooney told BT Sport.

“To walk in and see players on FaceTime to their mates before they go out to warm up was strange, but I suppose that’s the way football is going.”
