The Man Utd fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are finding it difficult to defend this once prolific frontman…
After a disastrous week at Old Trafford, the Man Utd fans in the Tavern have been highly critical of their team.
Jose Mourinho has received the brunt of the abuse – but once-loved frontman Wayne Rooney is definitely a close second.
Fed up with his poor performances and lack of goals, the United faithful feel that it is time that Rooney takes a back seat at United – with a number of players raring to be given a chance ahead of the Englishman.
In spite of the criticism of his performances, however, Rooney has been quick to come out and defend himself.
He added: “I don’t really listen to what a lot of people out there are saying because a lot of it is rubbish”
Never one to lack confidence, Rooney is seemingly desperate to prove the critics wrong – and is keeping his focus on how he performs on the pitch.
In an era where players are under extra scrutiny, Rooney’s self-confidence is an important trait as he looks to get back to his best form.
Nonetheless, the Man Utd faithful in the Tavern are struggling to support the Englishman during his current run of form, and are truly hoping that he puts his boots where his mouth is.
Our landlord thinks that another poor performance could spell disaster for Rooney…
