Louis van Gaal insists he still has confidence in his captain Wayne Rooney despite his ongoing struggle for form and goals.
Rooney has scored just twice in the Premier League this season, while United have failed to find the net in their last three matches.
Speaking at a press conference on the eve of the Reds' Champions League clash at home to CSKA Moscow, Van Gaal said Rooney has more credits than any other player:
Old Trafford will play host to a testimonial match in honour of Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney - with all profits raised from the game going to charity.
The match will mark Rooney's 12 years at the club and is scheduled to take place on 3 August 2016.
Money generated from the game will be distributed to his chosen charities through the newly-created Wayne Rooney Foundation, a registered charity.
"I would like to thank everyone involved in making this testimonial become a reality
"Most of all I want to thank the fans for all their incredible support for me and the team since I joined the club.
"The match night will obviously be special for me and my family but I hope it will be a night of celebration for all involved and that we can also deliver one or two surprises."
"From his sensational debut hat-trick to the latest of his 236 goals, he has been a central figure in what has been one of the most successful periods in the club's history, winning everything from the Club World Cup, the Champions League and League Cup, to his five Premier League titles.
"Wayne has selected good causes very close to his heart and the club is delighted to play its part, in providing Old Trafford as a fitting stage for such a game."
