- Controversial British TV personality Piers Morgan has called out Wayne Rooney for his latest comments on the composition of Man United’s lineup against Liverpool
- Rooney, Man United’s club record scorer, advised Erik Ten Hag to bench Cristiano Ronaldo in their Premier League encounter against Liverpool
- United are winless in their opening two league games, suffering a 2-1 opening day defeat to Brighton before being sent to the cleaners by Brentford
English broadcaster Piers Morgan has called out Wayne Rooney for advising Erik Ten Hag against selecting Cristiano Ronaldo ahead of Manchester United’s league game against Liverpool.
Man United boss Erik Ten Hag has had a difficult start to life in the Premier League, shockingly stumbling to an opening defeat to Brighton before his charges crumbled to an embarrassing 4-0 loss to Brentford.
The club’s slow start to the season has seen the Red Devils firmly rooted at the bottom of the 20-team league ahead of a tough test against archrivals Liverpool on Monday, August 22.
Ahead of the difficult test against Liverpool, who are also winless in their opening two league games, former Man United forward Wayne Rooney has urged the Dutch manager to bench Ronaldo.
Rooney’s suggestion to ten Hag did not sit well with ace broadcaster and devout Cristiano Ronaldo fan, Piers Morgan.
The former Good Morning Britain co-host took to Twitter to slam Rooney for his comments while aiming a dig at his below-par managerial record.
“Rooney has a managerial win record of 28% and his DC United team lost 6-0 yesterday. So I suggest he pipes down with the management advice and endless jealous b*tching about Cristiano Ronaldo whose talent, success & fitness levels all dw*rf Rooney’s.”

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag can boost his hopes of securing his first Premier League point against Liverpool on Monday if he dropped Cristiano Ronaldo and Marcus Rashford Red Devils legend Wayne Rooney writes in the Sunday Times.
United have opened their campaign with embarrassing defeats, Brighton recording their first ever win at Old Trafford followed by a 4-0 whipping by Brentford last weekend.
It leaves them rooted at the bottom of the Premier League for the first time in 30 years.
