Manchester United Football Club have had an awful week. Jose Mourinho’s men have lost three games on the bounce, and that’s the first time the self-proclaimed Special One has managed that unwanted stat since 2002. The team just don’t look anywhere near good enough at the moment, with one man a particular concern.
Our captain Wayne Rooney has struggled massively at the start of the season, and it has been a real shame to watch him play so poorly. Now 30, you know his best years are well and truly behind him, but you still expect something from a player of his calibre.
However, he just looks absolutely finished at the top level. Rooney has been a couple of yards off the pace in the opening games of this current campaign, and you feel Jose Mourinho dropping him from the starting line-up isn’t too far away.
Just look at his positioning for two of Watford’s goals below. He’s just completely out of the picture when he should be busting a gut to get back and help the team out.
