Wayne Rooney mocks Piers Morgan after Manchester United beat Arsenal

Published 21 Comments

A knee injury kept Wayne Rooney out of Manchester United’s 3-2 win over Arsenal but that didn’t stop him from revelling in the Red Devils’ delight.

Marcus Rashford’s brace and a second-half goal from Ander Herrera gave United a memorable win as Old Trafford welcomed a new star.

Rashford, much like Rooney 12 years ago, had a Premier League debut to remember. Rooney scored a hat-trick on his United debut against Fenerbahce and Rashford followed up his brace against Midtjylland on his official debut with another in his first league start.

The win boosted United’s hopes of finishing in the top four and before tweeting his delight to Rashford, Rooney had a quick dig at Arsenal’s biggest fan, Piers Morgan.

In two letters, the 30-year-old stuck a knife through Morgan’s heart.

"hi”, was Rooney's simple, yet painful, message. 

He followed up his message to Morgan with a congratulatory message to Rashford.

“Well done lads, big win!” the striker said. “Congratulations again to Marcus Rashford on another great performance”.

Rooney had better watch out. He won’t have a place in the starting line-up if Rashford keeps it up.

Gutting loss

Victory for Arsenal would have closed the gap to leaders Leicester to two points and, after watching their Champions League hopes vanish on Tuesday, it was imperative they didn’t lose touch in the race for the title.

Morgan expressed his fury upon the full-time whistle.

“Beaten by a bunch of kids,” the TV host said. “Who will Wenger blame now? How about the one person most responsible for this team: himself”.
