After making his first start, against Aston Villa, since picking up a knee injury back in February, it seems that Wayne Rooney was none too impressed at being substituted after sixty-six minutes of the game.

Rooney, in his first game back, was responsible for the fine 40-yard pass that set up Marcus Rashford for only goal of the game, but reacted angrily to being substituted with Louis van Gaal confirming after the match,

“He was angry because he wanted to play 90 minutes. But it is good spirit.

“Wayne has not played 90 minutes in two-and-a-half months and he was losing balls that he was not in the first half.

“He was very good and the goal was more or less his goal.”


From such a competitive person we`re sure the reaction was nothing more than instinct and frustration

But with Manchester United entertaining Crystal Palace in midweek, it`ll be interesting to see if Wayne Rooney gets a full 90 minutes under his belt ahead of the FA Cup semi-final against Everton, at Wembley, this coming Saturday.
