by Ben Topliss

In the latest of United Peoples TV’s 60 second roundup series, Sam looks at Wayne Rooney’s awful performance in Manchester United’s penalty shootout loss against Middlesbrough in the Capital One Cup on Wednesday.

Rooney replaced James Wilson at half time but did little to help his side as they were knocked out of the competition.

It looks as if Wilson has an injury, which is worrying as the striker was making his first start of the season.

Despite the result, Louis van Gaal insisted he was proud of his players following the game.
