Mourinho Drops Rooney From Starting XI

Manchester United captain, Wayne Rooney has been dropped by Jose Mourinho for the Red Devils' clash against Leicester City.
 
 
The 31-year-old has started the opening five matches for Mourinho this season, but has only found the back of the net on one occasion.
 
However, it was Rooney's performance in the 3-1 loss to Watford which drew tons of the criticism and he has now been dropped to the bench.
 
 
Mourinho opted for Zlatan Ibrahimovic to lead the line, while Juan Mata and Marcus Rashford has already been drafted into the line-up.
 
Do you agree that Rooney should have been dropped? Have your say in the comment section below.
