Manchester United captain and England International Wayne Rooney has expressed he understands why he was dropped by Jose Mourinho stating that the club has been playing well since he was dropped.
"I think if he was picking the next team on the back of that, I understand not playing. The team have done well, certainly in the Leicester game since that."
"I understand I have to work hard and try and get back and try and get my chance and take it."
"The team came back different, but I'll take a lot of that. Of course, I've done that throughout my career, but we have to work as a team in terms of trying to win and if I'm on the bench, so be it."
"I'll fight, I won't fight for my place, I'll fight to try and get back in."
