Rooney 'embarrassed' at United

Rooney 'embarrassed' at United

"I came on for one minute in the Europa League final. I was about to come on against Southampton in the League Cup final, and in those moments it was embarrassing.

"It was getting to a point where I was embarrassed. I thought 'I can't keep doing this', as hard as it was to leave United.

"In the Southampton game, [manager Jose] Mourinho came to me and said: 'I want you to lift the trophy.' I was like: 'Well, I didn't even play in the game.'

"He was persistent with it, and I literally lifted it and moved it on. What was I doing? I need to move on and go somewhere else."

Did Mourinho treat Rooney badly towards the end or had his powers waned to the point he wasn't deserving of a place in such games?
