Wayne Rooney be­lieves this is an “ex­cit­ing time” at Manch­ester United, de­spite the fact they could miss out on Cham­pi­ons League qual­i­fi­ca­tion. Louis van Gaal’s side must beat Bournemouth at Old Traf­ford to­day and hope neigh­bours City are de­feated at Swansea. Miss­ing out on the Cham­pi­ons League would be a huge blow for United, but Rooney in­sists the young tal­ent at the club means the fu­ture could be bright. “It’s al­ways ex­cit­ing work­ing with young play­ers,” said Rooney. “People for­get how young An­thony Mar­tial is (20). The club bought him so he hasn’t come through the academy, but he’s still only a re­ally young lad. “He’s still learn­ing, im­prov­ing and the same goes with the likes of Mem­phis De­pay, Mar­cus Rash­ford, Jesse Lin­gard, so it’s an ex­cit­ing time for the club. “Hope­fully, they keep im­prov­ing as play­ers and it’ll be a re­ally bright fu­ture for Manch­ester United.”
