Wayne Rooney (33) is part of the recession of his former club Manchester United.
It was a very disappointing end to the season for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Manchester United, who finished in 6th place in the Premier League after a series of weak results in the spring.
Many are now excited about how United will be able to return to the top.
Former United player Rooney now tells in his own podcast what he thinks is important for the club to be able to fight for trophies led by Solskjær in the coming years.
– I think the players should fear someone. They must be afraid of Ole Gunnar. They must be afraid of Michael Carrick. They must respect them, but they must also be afraid of them, says Rooney, according to the Daily Mail.

Skeptical for many of today's players
The Englishman, who even ended up in various scandals during his career in the Premier League, is also going strong against today's players.
– Now you have social media. There are now players who, after losing a match, publish something on social media about their new clothing collection, aftershave or whatever they post. I find it remarkable, says Rooney.
– When fans confront them with this, they are simply due to a marketing manager, the tip says.
He believes it is too simple and reflects the attitude of many players.
"These players usually always find someone to hide behind, whether on social media or in the field," says Rooney.
He also admits that he found it hard to see his old club fight like at the end of this season.
There is a lot of excitement about what Solskjær and the management of United are planning to get a boost next season.
The Norwegian has already confirmed that there will be changes in the playroom and it is expected that the club will invest new millions to lift the team.
At the same time there are also rumors that several of the United players are on their way.
Ander Herrera is already ready in the club, but he is expected to be able to follow through with several of his teammates. Alexis Sanchez is one of those whose English media claim they can disappear quickly in the summer.
