could very well be on the gear again.

Following ’s shock exit from the the former United keeper took to TalkSport to discuss the current state of affairs at .

He cited lack of attacking prowess and defensive frailty as the primary reason as to why United now find themselves in the , nothing wrong with expressing that opinion.

But for some reason he seems to think that as well as losing , somewhere along the line we’ve sold Rooney too:

“The side of the last four or five years has been built on a solid defence.

“Ronaldo and Rooney were the x-factor but they haven’t got that type of quality anymore.

“One of the biggest problems is their lack of goals and a number 10, they haven’t really got one.”

As far as I’m aware Rooney is still at United and played last night so I will take it that he means Rooney has lost ‘it’ and the use of anymore means something more permanent rather than a current issue.

Rooney has been in poor form in front of goal of late but still to make such a spurious claim is laughable. Rooney has always been a player that operates in patches and I’d bet that he will hit a purple patch again this season.

Bosnich also added his voice to the claim that United lack a world class midfielder and like found fault in the fact that a 38 year old was our best performer,

“They haven’t got a world class midfielder. Giggs did well on Wednesday night but that’s not his natural position. He’s doing a fantastic job considering his age but they need someone who plays between the opposition’s defence and midfield.

“That’s their go-to man, someone who can create things, especially when your defence is not what it was.”
