Manchester United icon, Wayne Rooney has snubbed former teammate Cristiano Ronaldo while playing a game of ‘play, bench, sell’.
The former Reds frontman, appearing on Indian TV station JioCinema, was asked who he would start, who he would bench and who he would drop between Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Harry Kane.
Rooney then claimed that he would drop his former strike partner Ronaldo, but only because the Portuguese star has not been featuring regularly for Erik ten Hag’s side so far this season.
“I’d probably go… I’d have to start [Lionel] Messi, I’d bench [Harry] Kane and leave [Cristiano] Ronaldo out,” said Rooney.
When it was suggested that Rooney would not receive a Christmas card from Ronaldo this year, Rooney replied: “He’s not playing for his club, so.”
