Valencia winger Nani has backed ex-team-mate Wayne Rooney to become Manchester United's greatest player if he can rediscover his form.
The former Old Trafford man believes the under-fire United striker can emerge stronger and go on to prove his critics wrong.
A growing number of United supporters have stated the time has now come for Rooney to be axed by boss Jose Mourinho.
And there are question marks whether the England man will be dropped for Saturday's clash at home to champions Leicester City.
Nani, however, still feels the 30-year-old has plenty to offer and can further cement his place in United's history.
The Portuguese international, who was part of their victorious Euro 2016 squad, said: "Rooney is a special player. Strong, fantastic quality, shooting, vision - very intelligent.
"I enjoyed playing with him. He is a player who is a big part of Man United. He has a chance to improve that and build his story.
"If he continues to play at a high level he can become the best there."
