Everton fans crucify Rooney after exit report

Everton fans are bashing Wayne Rooney, after a report claimed the veteran striker is disappointed by the club’s willingness to let him leave.

According to Paul Joyce of the Times, Wayne Rooney is hurt by Everton’s willingness to let him join MLS side D.C. United this summer, but he will speak to the new manager before making any decision.

Rooney returned to his boyhood club on a free transfer last summer, but after a solid start his first season back on Merseyside faltered after Christmas.

The 32 year-old was ill over the Christmas period, and hasn’t registered a single goal or assist in 2018, after grabbing ten Premier League goals before the illness.

The arrival of Sam Allardyce saw a change in position for the veteran, as he moved back into midfield alongside the likes of Tom Davies and Idrissa Gueye.

While there’s no question he still has ability, the Manchester United legend simply doesn’t have the pace and energy to play in a Premier League midfield, and he did take some flak for his performances towards the end of the season.

Fans are clearly annoyed by his feelings towards the exit links, saying if he wanted respect he should have come back sooner.
