MANCHESTER, England -- Former Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson has broken his post-retirement silence to praise Wayne Rooney for his start to the season, saying the England striker is "back to what we always remember."

Rooney's future at United was shrouded in uncertainty during the summer after falling out of favour last season with Ferguson, who revealed before retiring in May that the player had lodged a transfer request.

Chelsea made two bids for Rooney over the off-season but United refused to countenance selling him and is reaping the rewards, with Rooney scoring three times in his last two games.

In an interview on Thursday with United's in-house television station, Ferguson says Rooney has "got his energy back, the determination, his purpose to attack players. ... Being a director, I'm delighted to see that."
