It has been reported that Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal is keeping faith in striker Wayne Rooney, despite the England international’s barren run of form in recent weeks.
Rooney has scored just two goals in the Premier League this season and has not found the back of the net in his last four outings.
The 30-year-old did not touch the ball once inside the opposition penalty area during the Red Devils’ 0-0 draw with Crystal Palace on Saturday.
“He gives us more than only scoring goals,” Van Gaal said.
“He is our captain but also an example for the whole team. He has more credits than any other player. I have explained that to the group already, one and a half years ago. I still have confidence in Wayne Rooney.”
