Manchester United brushed aside Fenerbahce 4-1 to move joint top of Group A in the Europa League. Pogba scored twice while Martial and Lingard added a goal apiece to cap off a dominating display from Mourinho’s men.
Wayne Rooney making his first start since the League Cup tie against Northampton delivered one of his better performances on a night where he passed up on two scoring opportunities.
After being awarded a penalty, Rooney walked up to the penalty spot only to let Pogba take the penalty. After a short talk with Pogba, the Man Utd captain casually shrugged off his shoulders to let Pogba take the penalty and walked off apparently dejected. Even more surprising was when Anthony Martial stepped up to take the second penalty instead of Rooney.
It is not clear exactly why Rooney, needing just 3 more goals to match Sir Bobby Charlton’s record passed up on those penalties.
Watch the Rooney reaction during both the penalties below:
