Scholes hints at what could force Rooney to leave Man United

With Manchester United now looking as if they are getting back on track under Jose Mourinho, there’s been a good feeling amongst the Red Devils propping up the bar in the Transfer Tavern. 

While there’s still some way to go in restoring the fallen Premier League giants to former glories, our locals are largely happy with how they see the self-proclaimed ‘Special One’ progressing their club. Part of the reason they feel he’s doing so well is how the former Chelsea and Real Madrid coach dealt with the Wayne Rooney question.

Talk of whether or not he should be dropped for both club and country was rife for around 18 months, so the fact the Portuguese acted decisively in taking him out of the firing line, peppering him into the first-team as and when, seems to have done wonders for both he and the club.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, Paul Scholes has been praising the 54-year-old, which means a lot considering his popularity amongst the club’s support. However, the former England international has been shedding some insight on what he believes will eventually happen to Rooney.

”’If it carries on going the way it is, I can’t”, replied Scholes when asked whether or not he sees the 31-year-old sticking around long-term.

”Maybe it will be re-assessed at the end of the season if he’s in and out of the team. I don’t see him as a player who will accept that. He will want to be at a team where he’s playing every week.”

Is Scholes right? Let us know below…
