The Portuguese star recently claimed that United should be among the top three teams in the Premier League as they sit six points adrift the top four heading into this weekend's matches.

Rooney, who enjoyed great success with Ronaldo at United, feels being a top-three team is not good enough for a team of United's calibre.

"Manchester United have to be a top-one team, not top-three," Rooney said at his press conference, as per Daily Mail.

"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."
