Rooney added: "Jose came in and last season in the league we struggled and weren't consistent enough".

Everton striker Wayne Rooney says Romelu Lukaku is the flawless player for Manchester United and will improve their squad.

Romelu Lukaku has an average shot accuracy of 60 per cent in the Premier League this season.

Wayne Rooney has described Romelu Lukaku as "the ideal player" for Manchester United, based on their current tactical setup.

"He is powerful, quick and strong and he scores goals, so certainly will improve that team", Rooney told talkSPORT.

Three Premier League games in, and Lukaku's netted thrice, as well as in United's defeat in the UEFA Super Cup to Real Madrid before the league campaign got underway.

Mnuchin: Debt limit should be tied to Harvey funding
If Congress approves the relief but additional money is not borrowed, "we're not going to be able to get that money to the state". Congress must act by September 29 in order to raise the debt ceiling, a more contentious vote than the one for Harvey aid.


Rooney - who is United's leading all-time scorer with 253 goals - left Old Trafford for a return to boyhood side Everton on July 9 and spoke in-depth about his 13-year stay at the Manchester club.

The Spurs striker has won the Premier League Golden Boot the last two seasons and while he has not scored for his club yet this season, Van Nistelrooy has been impressed by his overall record and performances.

"He (Van Gaal) got a lot of stick".

"They will be a big success", Rooney said, with the Englishman set to face his former side at Old Trafford for the first time in mid-September.

"He looked at all the small details not only off the pitch but on the pitch".

A star-studded game on Saturday, the proceeds of which will go to the club's foundation, saw Van Nistelrooy, Edwin van der Sar, Dwight Yorke and Louis Saha among the big names to turn out for United.
