Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney definitely hasn’t been in the best of forms since the start of the 2016-17 season, as he’s been constantly criticized for his play. Furthermore, Mourinho has been accused from the fans too because of the fact that he is not putting Rooney on the bench more often.
However, it seems that Rooney doesn’t think his playing has been bad since the start of the campaign. The Manchester United player defended himself on MUTV after being asked what he thinks of his form, as he stated that he prefers to listen to his manager, teammates and friends and not to all the “rubbish” that is being said everywhere else.
Nevertheless, it’s a bit hard to say that the criticism has been all rubbish, as Rooney has definitely not been as productive as he used to be in his earlier days with the Red Devils.
