Rooney ended his 13-year spell at United last season and made a return to Everton on a free transfer.
The 31-year-old was numerous trophies at Old Trafford and is also the club's all-time record goalscorer with 253 goals in 557 appearances.
"I think he will get the welcome that he deserves," Mourinho was quoted as saying by SkySports News.
"I think sometimes in this country the word 'legend' comes too easy.
"That is not this case. He is a real legend of the club - the number of appearances, the number of goals and the number of trophies.
"I think clearly he is one of the most important players in the history of Manchester United.
"I think the stadium will show him that respect that he deserves, I hope, before the match and after the match but not during the match."
