Watford piled even more misery on Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United side, as they breezed past the most decorative English club 3-1 on Sunday.
Except teen striker Marcus Rashford, none of the United players even seemed to have the grit to win the match- especially their long-standing forward Wayne Rooney. Wazza put in a horrible day at the office, continuing his recent fall from grace and drew the ire of even the most loyal of United fans.
Although it is unfair to blame the defeat on the Englishman alone, it is evident that he did have any positive contributions to his side. His lack of positional awareness both defensively and when going forward was one of the main reasons United failed to do anything worthwhile.
Both of Watford’s goals from open play came due to extremely poor marking of the goalscorers; something a player as experienced as Rooney should have been aware of. Check out the pictures below!
With Mourinho starting him in midfield not helping him out in any way, he almost had an unbelievably bad match. His stats speak for themselves- he did not create a single chance from open play, did not play a single through ball, did not have a single shot on target, with one shot off target, and unbelievably, passed the ball forward only six times the ENTIRE match.
At this point, the semi-legendary Englishman himself must be wondering what he must do to not start a game.
