Former Manchester United midfielder Shinji Kagawa has backed former Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney to become Manchester United boss after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

According to Kagawa, Rooney is the perfect man to take charge at Manchester United should Solskjaer leave because he has personality, the experience and record.

Kagawa told the Mirror: “It’s hard to make any predictions because in the world’s top league, the manager is let go if they don’t get results.

“But I hope that Rooney will be successful and eventually become a manager at Manchester.

“He definitely has the personality, the experience and record for it.

“He’s the manager for Derby now, but I’m sure he’ll be creating success stories as a manager for a Premier League team soon.”
