Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney has aimed to argue with former teammate Cristiano Ronaldo who claimed that Manchester United are a "top-one team" and not a "not top-three" side.

The Red Devils have suffered a bad first half of the season despite adding players like Cristiano Ronaldo, Raphael Varane and Jadon Sancho to their squad.

Solskjaer has been sacked this season and things under Rangnick appear to take some more time, something fans and especially the media cannot seem to understand.

The Red Devils lie seventh in the Premier League table, six points behind the fourth placed side.

Ronaldo didn't seem happy in his interview with Premier League Productions as shown below:

“I don’t see other positions for Manchester United, to be honest, I don’t see." said Ronaldo

“In my eyes, I don't accept that our mentality be less than to be in the top three in the Premier League.”

Rooney spoke about these comments and reminded Ronaldo what Manchester United should be.

“Manchester United have to be a top-one team, not top-three,” Rooney told a Derby press conference.

“That's the demands which the fans put on you, the demands that the club has.

“Of course, they're going through a difficult period but, make no mistake, that's a club that has to be winning championships. It has to be winning trophies and that's the pressure with coming and playing or working for Manchester United.

“That's the level they need to be back to. I'm sure they'll do the right things to get them back to that place.”

The Red Devils face Aston Villa for the second time in a week on Saturday.
