Rooney at No.10

Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney was given a new role in a central midfielder by Louis van Gaal after a dismal spell up front last season.

Former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has come in at Old Trafford this summer and has made some pretty massive changes in the first team make-up.

As well as some big name signings, 30-year-old club captain Wayne Rooney has been moved once again and will be playing as a number 10 this season.

Rooney spoke about his new role in an interview with Owen Hargeaves to be aired on BT Sport. Watch the video below.
