Jones says Rooney is being rewarded for the work he's putting in on the training pitch.
He said: “I think it’s fair to say this is the best form he’s been in since I’ve been at United.
“He’s looking fit. He’s sharp, he’s enjoying his football, scoring goals, making assists. He’s one of the top players in the world, no question about it.
“He’s got his head down, worked extremely hard in the gym and off the field. He’s a credit to himself.”
