Yes, this season should mark the end of a great United era because except Michael Carrick no one from the previous era will be seen playing in the Top XI for the club. Why? Where is our all time highest goalscorer Wayne Rooney? He is being sold to Everton on a free transfer which is ridiculous.
Yes, he has not been at his best in the last couple of seasons but that does not mean you will sell one of the biggest club legends of all time. Talking about Rooney’s performance this season he has scored 10 goals and has assisted 8 times in all competitions which is more than many players at the club who will be seen playing next year at Old Trafford.
Wayne Rooney has always been with the club and to leave him is quite a blow to the prestige of the Red Devils. This is because he scored 250 goals which made him the all time highest scorer of the club. Yes! All time high scorer he went passed Bobby Charlton’s record of 249 goals which is quite commendable. Keeping such players in the club is an honour and in fact a matter of pride.
We should remember United’s loss against Fenerbahce where Rooney scored a spectacular goal as a consolation goal and also the game against Stoke City where he saved his team from a defeat by scoring a spectacular free kick in the injury time. Such moments remind us again and again about his importance at the club. He always has picked up the team sometimes scoring goals and everytime by giving a moral boost to the team.
Whatever be the reason? He scores or not. He deserved to retire at Manchester United, but now it will not be because his transfer to Everton has been confirmed and it is just now a mater of some days. Wayne Rooney is a true lover of football and he made an example by leaving the club where he achieved everything so that he can play the game.
He will end where he started! Yes, Everton and who is responsible for it, none other than Jose Mourinho!
It is just Michael Carrick remaining from the old Manchester United XI and he is not supposed to have much game time this season too.
David De Gea, Antonio Valencia, Ashley Young, Chris Smalling and Phil Jones are some of the guys who were there from before. However except De Gea others did not get much gametime and were mostly on the bench. Therefore, we can understand that this United team is a back-up squad of the 2012-13 Manchester United Team and is the reason for their poor performances in the league. When Sir Alex left he did not have a great back-up plan which is the drawback of this huge drop.
Now it is all new squad and having money they will be looking to bring in new faces who can get the team to the top once again.
