Highlights: Wayne Rooney, Watford 3-1 Man United, 18 Sep 2016

by Leo Nieboer


Manchester United skipper Wayne Rooney had another disappointing showing as his team suffered a 3-1 defeat to Watford on Sunday evening.

He has been consistently under performing and has only managed one goal in his last five appearances.

Fans have been getting impatient with his poor showings and the pressure has been mounting on the United captain with an uninspired display at Vicarage Road.

The highlight reel sums up Rooney’s woeful performance against Watford.


His sloppy passes, terrible touches and a complete lack of pace have weighed down United in their recent games.

With growing concerns at the club following their third consecutive loss across all competitions, Rooney has come under some heavy criticism.

Mourinho has not been afraid to bench some of his biggest players at Real Madrid and Chelsea, but with Rooney’s recent performances, the Portuguese boss must make a change now and let someone better equipped take the responsibility of the No.10 role.
