Wayne Rooney admits he deserved to lose his place in Manchester United starting lineup 


Wayne Rooney has been left out of the starting lineup in Manchester United’s last three matches following criticism of his performances during last month’s 3-1 defeat to Watford.
The 30-year-old insists that he understood Jose Mourinho’s decision, and is willing to be patient as he looks to work his way back into the starting XI.
“[Mourinho and I] chat every day. I’ve said before, I knew the Watford game I didn’t play well. I didn’t deserve to play the next game, I understood that, and the team have done well, so I have to bide my time and take my chance,” he told reporters.
“My career will be determined on what we won as a team. I am not a player who is happy to not to win as a team but to get individual trophies.

“I have never been that sort of player. I am proud of the trophies we have won as a team. That is the way I am now. I want to play football. I love football, whether it is scoring or not.”
