Jose Mourinho Drops Wanye Rooney As Manchester United Face Leicester. See Team Line Up
Posted On 13/11/2016
Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney has been left out of Jose Mourinho’s starting XI for the Premier League clash with reigning champions Leicester City.
Rooney has come in for criticism after his disappointing performances in the back-to-back league defeats to Manchester City and Watford, as well as the 3-1 EFL Cup win over Northampton. Mourinho told reporters that Rooney had been affected by the comments on his form after England’s 1-0 World Cup qualification victory over Slovakia earlier this month and has left the 30-year-old out of the side for Saturday’s game at Old Trafford. Anthony Martial had already been ruled out through injury.
