Rooney Was Raging But Who Cares?

Rooney Was Raging But Who Cares?

Wayne Rooney was substituted with 63 minutes gone as United defeated Besiktas 1-0 in Istanbul. Wayne threw a right little trantum, shaking his head as he came off, throwing his boots on the ground then exchanging some remarks with a Turkish fan.

Sir Alex was unconcerned by Rooney's reaction, especially as he was always going to take him off, with one eye on Sunday's Manchester derby.

'It was always part of our thoughts to bring Wayne off,' he said.

'He had been playing as the lone striker for an hour, which is why he was always going to come off. He is never pleased to come off. He has so much energy he wants to play all the time.'

That's it. Rooney was furious with himself because he did not play well; he wanted more time to do justice to his abilities but was denied it. And his rage subsided much quicker than Ronaldo's had when substituted in somewhat different circumstances against Manchester City last season. Ronaldo had been pathetic back then - after a good performance by him, with another important league game coming up on the next Wednesday -, Rooney was merely frustrated with himself, not the manager.

Yes yes yes. Rooney was disappointed with his performance, hence his dejected look. Apparently he was always going to come off, so I think he was just annoyed cos he was isolated and couldn't play as well as he has been doing. If United were 3-0 up I think he'd have understood that he was being rested. But at 0-0, he would have still been confident of scoring, and wanted to ensure United won. Ronaldo's strop was different, as he was taken off when United had all but won the game against City. Rooney was actually the man to come on that day, but he didn't complain about not even starting, accepting that fact. Stupidly, United played much better with two upfront after his substitution - how Rooney wanted to play but was denied by being up front on his own. He created so many chances for people to run on to but there was no one there.... still think we need two up front, even in Europe. At least at this stage of the competition where we can afford to be very attacking.

You can understand Rooneys frustration, Man utd champ explains it perfectly plus who actually likes being subbed anyway? It's pretty clearly from Rooneys several outbursts that Rooney doesnt like to play upfront on his own and that it really doesnt suit us as a team in my opinion its 2 upfront or bust.
