Manchester United fans were not impressed with Wayne Rooney‘s performance against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday in the Premier League.
The Englishman slowed the game down, misplayed passed, missed chances and made the wrong decisions, even though he was able to score a goal in the second-half after Anthony Martial played in a brilliant ball from out wide.
He started during last weekend’s 2-0 loss to Arsenal and was not having a great time as a common thought is that his best days are now behind him while an Old Trafford exit this summer is almost certain as he hadn’t performed the whole afternoon until he found a goal.
Here’s what fans on social media had to say about his performance at White Hart Lane.
I give up tweeting about Rooney regularly.. it's just sad how bad he is. Getting pity appearances. What an appalling end to his Utd career.

Makes me sad where Rooney is now. Such a phenomenal player reduced to this. Really sad.

Rooney is embarrassingly bad. Not even PL level any more. He's essentially become Robbie Savage.

Jones, Smalling, Rooney – Deadwood

If i was Rooney i'd go over to the bench and ask to be subbed of. Embarrassing for the last 4 years. Can't wait to get rid.

Rooney has had more chances in the team in recent weeks as Mourinho has been forced to rotate players in the Europa League and Premier League but he just hasn’t taken them.
He’s been playing a role in the side since Zlatan Ibrahimovic picked up a knee injury and he just hasn’t been able to redeem himself as things have just gotten worse for the Englishman.
Rooney has been poor and it’s sad to see a player of his status at Old Trafford see out the rest of his career in this manner, as he’s nowhere near the player he once was.
