Manchester United Fans Call For Wayne Rooney To Be Dropped After Another Disappointing Performance

Wayne Rooney’s performance has been called into question by fans.

After Manchester United sunk to a 2-1 derby day defeat to Manchester City, fans of the Red Devils quickly began to call into question the performance of a number of their players.

Although a number of players put in underwhelming performances, Wayne Rooney was singled out by fans after he failed to have a positive impact on proceedings.

Throughout the second half the United captain was seen arguing with the referee as he cut a frustrated figure on the pitch. While Rooney should have been awarded a penalty following Claudio Bravo’s challenge, he hardly won favour with Mark Clattenburg over the course of the game.

Not only that, but in the first half, Rooney’s touch was poor, while he also attempted a number of long range Hollywood passes that only gifted the ball back to Manchester City.

Indeed, it could even be argued that Rooney’s error was the catalyst for City’s opening goal.

In any event, with Zlatan Ibrahimović demonstrating fantastic form and Marcus Rashford quickly becoming a key player, Rooney’s time as the focal point of United’s attack maybe coming to an end.
