Missing in action – Wayne Rooney
Missing in action: Wayne Rooney
Last seen: 30 March, 2010 – The striker twisted his ankle in a Champions League quarter-final against Bayern Munich
Wayne Rooney netted an impressive 34 goals in 44 competitions during the last campaign, prompting many to speak of the England international in the same breath as Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Since then, things have rapidly dried up for the United number 10. Three goals in 17 appearances this season is cause for concern.
With off the field issues to deal with, Sir Alex gave the striker an extended holiday following his abysmal World Cup. Nevertheless, it has proved to have had little effect.
The future: With Dimitar Berbatov currently carrying United’s title challenge, if the Bulgarian was to stop firing, the pressure will really begin to build on the England star.
