World Cup Buzz at related • 0 views

Manchester (United Kingdom) (AFP) Jose Mourinho may leave Wayne Rooney out of Manchester United's starting side for the second match in a row when they face Ukrainian side Zorya Luhansk in the Europa League on Thursday.

Rooney was on the bench for United's weekend game with Premier League champions Leicester City and didn't get on until very late in the game as Mourinho's side showed their best form of the season in a superb 4-1 win

That led to huge speculation over whether Rooney has a future under Mourinho at United, where he made his club debut, scoring a hat-trick in a 6-2 Champions League win over Fenerbahce, exactly 12 years ago on Wednesday.
