Rooney’s comments come in the wake of United’s 1-0 defeat to Arsenal which further compounded their disappointing season and heightened scrutiny on manager Erik ten Hag.

United’s defeat marked their 19th loss in all competitions and left them struggling in eighth place with just two games remaining.

With 11 senior players sidelined due to injuries ahead of key fixtures like the FA Cup final against City Rooney expressed his dismay at the perceived lack of commitment from some players.

Rooney, United’s record goalscorer, stated, “Because they are getting a little bit of stick now, it is easy for players to stay out of a little bit and then come back towards the final and get themselves fit for the European Championship.”

His remarks highlight the tension surrounding United’s squad as they navigate through a challenging period.

What Roy Keane Said?

Quoting Wayne Rooney fake injury claim, former United captain Roy Keane added,

“It is not a good sign if players do not want to come back from injury and play. There are always a few players at a club that drag their heels with injuries, but generally, if you give them a length of time they’ll be out for, they will look to knock a week or two off that.”

In response to Rooney’s comments, United declined to provide a statement, further intensifying the scrutiny of the club’s internal dynamics.

With their season spiralling downward, the cancellation of their traditional end-of-season awards dinner underscores the gravity of their situation.

Meanwhile, Arsenal’s 1-0 victory over United has reinvigorated their hopes of securing the Premier League title, with manager Mikel Arteta expressing optimism ahead of their final fixture against Everton.

Arteta emphasized the significance of the win, stating,

“Winning I think encourages you to win more and to be better equipped and better prepared and have more confidence to win in different contexts and grind results in different ways.”

As United grapples with internal discord and Arsenal pushes for the title, the final stages of the Premier League season promise to deliver intrigue and drama on and off the pitch.

Graeme Souness supports Wayne Rooney in his statement regarding Man Utd fake injuries. Speaking on TalkSPORT, Graeme Souness said: “He’s heard the same, I’m sure his information will be better than mine because he’ll know people that are in that dressing room.

“I have heard this, there are players who are capable of playing and their injuries aren’t as serious as they would have you believe. And that’s a shocking indictment, imagine that. I wouldn’t get out of bed if someone accused me of that.”
