Van Gaal sick of talking about Rooney- fans sick of seeing Rooney

So United boss Louis Van Gaal says he is ‘sick’ of talking about Rooney. After the Manchester derby in which Rooney endured the worst ‘birthday football game’ of all time, Van Gaal inevitably faced questions on Rooney’s performance but rather than respond, the Dutch boss said: “I don’t give any more answers about Wayne Rooney. I am sick of them.”

Rooney, according to the statistics, was the worst player on the pitch but, once again, the England forward played the full 90 minutes for Manchester United

Wayne Rooney has increasingly come in for criticism this season and while Van Gaal may not want to entertain suggestions of dropping his captain, fans clearly have other ideas.

Looks like the clock is ticking for White Pele…
