Wayne Rooney has won it all Manchester United and knows the system quite well. The current DC United player said on the The Wayne Rooney Podcast: ‘I think the players need to fear someone. They need to fear Ole Gunnar. They need to fear Michael Carrick. They need to respect them but fear them also.’ when asked about the slump that Manchester United are in.
‘The way the game has gone has changed, society has changed. You have got social media.
‘You have got players losing a game and posting something on social media about their new clothing range, their new aftershave, whatever they’re bringing out, which I find remarkable.
‘When fans speak up on it and say “why are you posting that?” they always have the marketing people to blame [but] take responsibility.
‘They work for you. Those marketing people work for you. I have people who do similar stuff for me and they never do anything without my instructions.
‘If that is what you’re doing, you’re sitting at the top of that business. You have to take responsibility for them.
‘These players almost always like to find someone to hide behind, whether that is on their social media or on the football pitch and that’s what they are doing.’
