Manchester United has not been the same since Sir Alex Ferguson left the club in 2013. Since then, the club has not won a Premier League title since the 2012/2013 season, and many managers have come and gone. Managers like David Moyes, Louis van Gaal, Jose Mourinho, and Ole Gunnar Solksjaer have been there for the past decade. Erik Ten Hag joined the club in the summer of 2022, and the results have yet to live up to Manchester United's expectations.

Manchester United won 1-0 against Nottingham Forest in the 5th round of the FA Cup. Man United will play Liverpool in the quarterfinals of the FA Cup in a few weeks but will first take on Manchester City in the Premier League this weekend. A Manchester United legend that was watching the FA Cup against Nottingham Forest was Wayne Rooney. Rooney had his thoughts about the team's current state and what is coming up in the team's schedule.

Rooney said, "It is a massive victory and not the best of games. Both sides missed good chances, but that's a big win for Man United. You want big players to have big moments and Bruno Fernandes and Casemiro combined at the end. Man United lose one game, and it's a crisis. I've seen that, I've been there. But tonight was a good win and a good reaction from the Fulham game. The derby is a big challenge coming up, Manchester City are a fantastic team and it's a big challenge.”

Rooney defended Erik Ten Hag for his work and Man United and believes it takes time to flourish. Rooney also mentions the Man United job to be one of his goals. Rooney said, "A lot is made about Erik ten Hag's position, but he has been doing OK. We are starting to see more consistency, and I think he will get time. That’s the aim I want to get to. Manchester United, Everton.. all these big jobs. It’s a process, I have to get myself back into management so in the next 10 years I’m in a position to go into one of the big jobs."
