Wayne Rooney Praises Manchester Uniteds Acquisition Of Jadon Sancho But Warns Oel Gunnar Solskjaer That He Is Under Pressure

Wayne Rooney feels Jadon Sancho’s arrival at Manchester United would be immensely beneficial to the club, but he has cautioned manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer that he will now be held to a higher standard in terms of delivering trophies.
United have reached an agreement in principle to sign Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho for PS73 million, and the deal is expected to be completed soon.
Several high-profile players have been connected with Solskjaer’s side, including Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane, and United icon Wayne Rooney has stated that the manager would now be scrutinized more closely.
‘I think there will be a lot of pressure, which there should be with Manchester United,’ Wayne Rooney said of Manchester United’s agreement for Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho. Rooney also warned Ole Gunnar Solskjaer that he will now be under more pressure to produce championships.
They are rumored to be in for a couple more players with Sancho coming in.
‘They’re at a phase now when the supporters will be looking for success and trophy, and Ole and his coaching staff will be under pressure to provide that,’ Rooney said of United’s opponents next season.
‘(Manchester) City, Chelsea, the Champions League winners, Liverpool, there are some really good teams, but Manchester United is steadily improving,’ he remarked.
‘I believe they will be in a position to truly challenge next season.’
Rooney was speaking after his Derby County team were beaten 2-1 by United in a pre-season friendly. Solskjaer is yet to win a trophy as United manager, but he has garnered plaudits for his performance.
United hasn’t won the Premier League title since 2012-13, when Rooney was still a member of the squad.
Last season, Solskjaer led United to second place in the league, but he has yet to win a trophy as the club’s manager.
United took the lead against Derby thanks to Tahith Chong, who is due to join Birmingham on loan, and youngster Facundo Pellestri made it 2-0.
Colin Kazim-Richards pulled a goal back for Derby, but United held on to win.
