Roy Keane Has His Say On Wayne Rooney's Man Utd Future

Roy Keane Has His Say On Wayne Rooney's Man Utd Future

Wayne Rooney looked like the forgotten man of Manchester United on Thursday night.

After Zlatan Ibrahimovic went down injured at the end of normal time against Anderlecht, worryingly clutching his knee, and the game ticked into extra-time, Jose Mourinho chose to bring on Anthony Martial for the extra 30 minutes rather than Rooney.

Speaking on ITV's Europa League highlights show, Roy Keane said Rooney being overlooked is likely the 'final nail in the coffin' for him at Man Utd.

In terms of the bigger picture, I would have thought that's the end of Wayne at Man Utd. He'll obviously contribute until the end of the season because of the injuries.

But he must be fuming, not to be brought on into extra-time. I think it's the final nail in the coffin for him, definitely.

Keane added that his former teammate must have been angry following the game and that if he was not, it was a sign that his heart is no longer in the game.


I'd expect him to be fuming. If he's not fuming, then he's obviously lost the eye of the tiger. He must be like a mad man tonight, he must be.
