Rooney will adjust game to work with Man Utd ace Van Persie

Wayne Rooney is willing to adjust his game to partner new Manchester United signing Robin van Persie.

Rooney is confident building an exciting attacking partnership.

He told the Manchester Evening News: "Robin is a very experienced player and scored the most goals in England last season. He has changed his game to score more goals and that is great now for us. Arsenal got the benefit of it last season without winning anything but without his goals I don't think they would have got into the Champions League this season.

"So it is great for us now. I am looking forward to getting back into the team and trying to forge an understanding with him. Ever since I have been at United, I have had good partnerships with the likes of Ruud, Louis Saha, Tevez, Dimitar Berbatov, Javier Hernandez and Danny Welbeck. With all those players I have had to adapt my game. It is a case of whether I play behind them or I am the one up-front. I have always managed to adapt and fit in."
