Jose Mourinho hails Wayne Rooney as 'England's best' ahead of Manchester United testimonial



New Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has hailed Wayne Rooney as
"England's best player for over a decade" ahead of the striker's testimonial against Everton.

United will face Rooney's former club at Old Trafford on August 3 - in what will be their first home pre-season fixture in two years and Mourinho's first in charge - with all proceeds going to charity.



Rooney has been rewarded after 12 years with the club following a £20m move from Goodison Park in 2004

Mourinho's first game in charge of United will be the Wayne Rooney testimonial

And Mourinho said: "Wayne is and has been England's best player for over a decade and this game will be a fitting tribute to everything he has achieved.





"I'm looking forward to what will be a very special night for us both. I'm sure the fans will make this a memorable occasion and help Wayne to raise a lot of money to help support vulnerable children."

The match will mark the beginning of a year of fundraising events by the new Wayne Rooney Foundation, aimed at raising £5m for disadvantaged and vulnerable children.
