Wayne Rooney Reveals Even The Kitchen Staff Were Fed Up Under Jose Mourinho

By the end of Manchester United's first game under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on Saturday evening no one was in any doubt about the mood at the club getting better. Wayne Rooney revealed just how bad things had got.

It was always going to be interesting to see how Manchester United players reacted to the end of the Jose Mourinho era and the start of the Ole Gunnar Solskjaer era but it ended up being a pretty emphatic statement.

Fans, players and mostly the new manager will not want to get ahead of themselves but the 5-1 win over Cardiff was as good a start to the new era as possible.



Under Jose Mourinho players were unhappy, fans were unhappy and the football wasn't good at all, with the Red Devils barely threatening in Mourinho's last game in charge against Liverpool.

On BT Sport on Saturday night Wayne Rooney was in the studio as a pundit and it was revealed that he'd text Solskjaer in the lead up to the Norwegian's debut as United boss.

And Rooney claimed that the bad mood at the club before last Tuesday's sacking had even affected the kitchen staff:

"[It was] not just the players, but the whole football club.


"I'm sure Ed Woodward was the same, the staff, the kitchen ladies, the kit men weren't enjoying it. Ole's the person [to help] straight away and I know they're happy."

On Sunday things were very different as the team were much more positive and scored five goals in a league game for the first time since Sir Alex Ferguson's last game.

Marcus Rashford scored a free kick to open the scoring before Ander Herrera's deflected long distance effort made it 2-0.


Cardiff pulled one back from a penalty but Anthony Martial started and finished a brilliant move before half-time to make it 3-1 at the break.

Jesse Lingard scored from the spot to give United a three goal advantage before the England midfielder finished the rout late on.

Things at Old Trafford are already looking a little brighter and now hopefully the kitchen staff can enjoy a very nice Christmas, considering the Grinch has left the building.
