Wayne Rooney’s wife Coleen took to Twitter to express her surprise that her hubby didn’t start last night’s match against Real Madrid.
Rooney was left on the bench for the Champions League match, with Coleen tweeting: “Can’t believe @WayneRooney isn’t starting tonight!!!”
Some of today’s newspapers are pondering whether the selection decision spells the end of the England striker’s time at Old Trafford.
Former United captain Roy Keane seemed to see the situation that way ahead of kick-off.
In his capacity as an ITV pundit, Keane said: “Maybe the writing is on the wall for him.
“We have to trust the manager a bit tonight but in terms of the way Wayne carried on in the last year of his [previous] contract, maybe he has decided to go about getting Robin van Persie up and running.”
