One time Republic of Ireland midfielder, Eamon Dunphy has launched a scathing remark of Wayne Rooney, believing the United man to be a ‘burnout’.
Dunphy believes the current roster at United will find it hard to reach the top four and has fingered Rooney as another player who should be dropped.
“Rooney looks like he’s finally burnt out. He hasn’t been a first choice for Mourinho for a few weeks,” Dunphy told RTE 2fm.
“And he’s never played in his correct position. When Mourinho arrived, one of the first things he said was that Rooney is a goalscorer, a number 10, and that’s where he’ll play.
“And he hasn’t played there at all. I think you can forget Rooney in terms of saving the day for Manchester United. He was a marvellous player, but he’s not going to be that anymore.
“I think they’ve got an awful lot of work to do to get into the top four. I don’t think they will.
