Wayne Rooney believes his Manchester United team-mate Angel di Maria will be able to overcome his recent form and become a success at Old Trafford.

Following a bright start to the Premier League season, Di Maria has dropped off the pace and was substituted in their last outing at half-time in the 2-0 win over Sunderland after a disappointing first 45 minutes.

Rooney has no doubts about the Argentina international’s quality and feels the former Real Madrid star will be able to turn things around at United.

He said: “It was one of those days that every footballer has.

“He’s a great player. You don’t lose your talent overnight. Hopefully he’ll get back to his best and start giving some great performances.

“I think he will figure it out, we all have to do that sometimes. You have to come to it in your own way and I am sure he will be a big player for us between now and the end of the season.”

United are next in action on Wednesday when they travel to St James’ Park to face Newcastle.

The Red Devils are 2.00 to win, 3.50 to draw and 4.20 to lose to the Magpies.
