Rooney calls for patience with Mata

Wayne Rooney has called upon Manchester United fans to remain patient with new signing Juan Mata admitting it could take some time before we see the Spaniard at his best.

Although Mata has made 3 assists in 4 games since joining United, he is yet to score his first goal. Rooney believes this is something that will come in time.

“Juan has come in and it’s another world-class player to have in the squad,” he told Sky Sports.

“It’ll take time, it can always take a little bit of time for every player to gel and to bond but we really hope we can all start scoring goals and help the team be successful.”

Meanwhile, United are in Dubai in a warm weather training camp ahead of the Premier League run-in and Champions League knock-out stages.
