Wayne Rooney divides opinion. He always has done, and he probably always will do. Forget the fact he’s England’s all-time record goalscorer, has been playing in the Premier League at the top level for over a decade and that he’ll probably become Man United’s greatest ever goal-getter, he gets a hard time week in, week out nowadays.
And there is some logic to it… he’s becoming an issue. Indeed, Jose Mourinho was immediately questioned about Rooney and his role upon being named as the Red Devils’ new boss, and it seems that, even though there’s a lack of pace up top in this current Man United side, he’s un-droppable.
And fans are really noticing the problems ‘Wazza’ is causing. Twitter is often an unforgiving place, and Rooney won’t want to search his name this evening when he gets on the team bus. The criticism has been plentiful, and here are a few tweets…
Looks like we just have to accept Rooney starting for us every week. It will cost us. Big time.

Whichever smart arse told Rooney that the centre circle would be stolen if he didn’t guard it must be laughing pretty heartily right now.

Rooney has lost it 3 times within 23 seconds. I can’t believe what I’ve just seen. My eyes are burning.

Heavy rain falling at Hull City’s ground, Rooney will end up stranded in the mud.

Friends of Rooney in the media are obviously going to defend him, it’s just annoying that they’re getting air time. It’s not the truth.

Serious question now. When was the last time you watched Rooney play football and thought he had a good game?

Rooney ordering players where to make their runs,as if his corner kick will go past the near post…

Rooney can’t even dribble the ball to the corner flag.
