Some Derby County fans were left baffled by the decision by Wayne Rooney as he chose not to bring on Jordon Ibe against Brentford last night.
The Rams ended up getting a well-earned point away from home against Brentford in the EFL Championship, which may end up being a crucial one toward the end of the campaign, but the 0-0 scoreline showed that they could not break down the Bees in the final third of the pitch.
Should Ibe start for Derby?
Ibe could have been a good option to bring on, given the pace that the winger possesses, and he would have also been extra keen to impress given that he has not yet played in a game for the senior team so far in the 2020/21 term (Transfermarkt).
Nonetheless, Rooney decided not to bring on the former Liverpool and Bournemouth man and the Pride Park faithful had to settle for a point in the end, with Ibe still left waiting to be given his chance by the former Manchester United and England legend.
