British Tabloids Conjure Up Tales Of Wayne Rooney Heading Out of Manchester United: The Nightly EPL

rooney paper headline 600x225 British Tabloids Conjure Up Tales Of Wayne Rooney Heading Out of Manchester United: The Nightly EPL

The British tabloids have pounced on the story about Wayne Rooney’s exclusion from the Manchester United side that started against Real Madrid, and now are jumping to conclusions that the star striker will be leaving the club this summer.

If anything, it shows Manchester United’s incredible depth if a player of Rooney’s calibre has to sit on the bench. While Rooney is an incredibly gifted footballer, his place in the United side isn’t guaranteed. He has to work for it. Full credit to Ferguson for making the tough decision to sit Rooney. Meanwhile, the British tabloids should be ashamed of themselves.
