Newcastle United's winless start might have stretched to eight games - but some comfort can be taken from Saturday's late 3-2 defeat at Old Trafford.
United haven't started the season well with three losses already in the Premier League, so far.
"I agree with Jose".
The incident follows a tricky period for the Manchester United boss with bookmakers suspending bets on his departure prior to the win on the weekend.
Former United striker Rooney echoed his former England team-mate's sentiments.
Rooney was the star of the show as DC United beat Bastian Schweinsteiger's Chicago Fire 2-1 to keep their unlikely play-off dream alive.
"Because if Jose was to be changed in the next couple of weeks, the new manager will see a few players he doesn't like and then you're in that cycle of continually changing". But a manager is as good as the squad he has, so if the team isn't good they can't perform miracles. "Probably collectively it is a bit of everything coming together, but Jose is an easy target", Rooney said, according to the Mirror. "I said to the players we have be doing better", added Rooney.
The 32-year-old believes the current situation at United is similar to Louis van Gaal's two-year reign at the club.
"When we come back, we have two important games where, if we have good results, we can move forward". "Even older players commit mistakes that are not normal".
The Fulham boss revealed that the two-time European Cup-winning coach is an immensely supportive figure behind the scenes and has always been ready to help out young managers.
