Manchester United fans’ reaction to Wayne Rooney red card

Manchester United fans’ reaction to Wayne Rooney red card

Wayne Rooney‘s inexplicable kick-out against West Ham saw him deservedly red carded and meant his Manchester United team-mates had to sustain 30 minutes of intense pressure to see out the 2-1 victory.

Instead of chasing his opponent back to stop the counter-attack, Rooney decided his best option was to lash out and Lee Mason wasted no time at all in sending the United captain off.

Rooney’s red card gave West Ham the impetus to attack with intent and United defended very well to withstand the barrage of attacks coming their way to hold on for the win.

It’s not what you expect your captain to do and he let his Louis van Gaal, his team-mates and fans down with his red card.

That being said, some United fans did stand up for Rooney in the aftermath of the incident.

What is your reaction to Rooney’s red card?
