Manchester United fans were not impressed with Wayne Rooney‘s performance against Arsenal at the Emirates on Sunday afternoon.
Jose Mourinho rested the players who had played too many games in April for the Europa League second-leg clash against Celta Vigo.
Rooney was back in the starting line-up, but fans weren’t happy as he slowed the game down, played too deep and missed a goal-scoring opportunity in the first-half where he had the chance to play Juan Mata through on goal but ended up missing in a one on one with Petr Cech.
Here’s what fans on social media had to say about his performance.
Rooney is just useless😡😡😡😡

His showing just wasn’t good enough against Arsenal, and supporters weren’t happy as Jose Mourinho left the likes of Paul Pogba, Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard on the bench while Arsene Wenger’s men took the lead, bringing them off the bench at 2-0.
It’s disappointing but it’s clear Mourinho has put an emphasis on winning the Europa League as the side fall further behind in their aim of making it into the Premier League top four.
