“Some of these players have to look at themselves because when your manager is doing an interview and talking about attitudes not being right to play for Manchester United, that is a massive insult,” said Rooney via Mirror.

“If I saw my manager saying that, there’s no way I’d let that ride until the end of the season. And it looks like some players are just trying to get to the end of the season. And that’s my personal opinion.”

“If they are (playing for the manager) then they’re not showing it very well. There’s some very good players in that squad and their performances are way below par.

“As we look at the injuries they’ve picked up, some of those players can play. Some of those players can play, 100 per cent.”
