The current D.C United marksman is arguably one of the greatest players in the club’s history, and the video on Twitter has got fans reminiscing about their glory days during a time when their players showed plenty of passion and determination.
United, now managed by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, are sat in sixth-place in the Premier League, and face an uphill battle to qualify for the Champions League.
It seems that their current period is so difficult to enjoy that they have been forced to take to days gone by for a source of entertainment.
Well, that’s if their reactions on Twitter are anything to go by…
Missing this kind of player in Man Utd. Nowdays everyone is running after salary rather than passion for club.

Gosshh!!! I miss this passion in the Man United players!!! No nonsense!! @WayneRooney knew what it meant to wear that jersey and represent the club. Always giving 120% every time he played. This new generation needs to pick a leaf. A bunch of soft ninjas smh. #MUFC

Gosh I miss Rooney at Utd, was a Player who gives it all, even when it’s not working on the day. Unlike many of the current Squad who are more interested in dancing on Instagram!
