Published Add your comment

Rio Ferdinand has revealed his former team-mate and Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney is 'crazy' when he loses on FIFA. 

The latest installment of EA Sports' hit video game was released yesterday and Ferdinand was answering questions at a Q and A event when he named and shamed the Red Devils star. 

The BT Sport pundit admitted he was among the worst when he was younger but said someone would have to go to the shop and buy more controllers if Rooney suffered a defeat.

As per the Mirror, the former England international said: "I used to be up there when I played when I was younger.

"Wayne Rooney definitely. Crazy. We were known to have to go to the shop for more controllers a few times."

Let's face it, we've all suffered from FIFA rage at some point. A last-minute goal can send even the most tranquil person into a state of absolute hysteria.

It appears the England captain takes his attitude on the pitch into competitions on the virtual grass. 

But we will not vilify the 29-year-old for showing some passion - well, frustration - when it comes to competing against your teammates. 

Nobody ever wants to lose a game of FIFA to their friends and the want to win can do incredible things to people. 

However, what will be more important to Rooney is his form in the real world. The 29-year-old has performed below expectation so far this season and there appears to be no sign of improvement despite his goal against a second-string Ipswich Town. 

Anthony Martial has hit the ground running since his arrival and has established himself as the Red Devils' top striker.

Having dropped into the number ten role for the trip to Southampton, Rooney failed to impress once again and there will be a number of players in the United squad eyeing up his place in the starting line-up.

Will Wayne Rooney recover his best form or is his time at Manchester United coming to an end? Have your say in the comments section below!
