first_imgWayne Rooney let down Manchester United and the club’s fans with his red card against West Ham, Gordon Hill believes.The forward was sent off after 59 minutes when he kicked out at Stewart Downing in an attempt to stop a counter attack.Manager Louis van Gaal defended the player, but the England star was rounded on by supporters for the foolish incident and former winger Hill, who made 134 appearances for United in the mid-Seventies, insisted the incident is not becoming of a captain.“That [foul] was very cynical,” he told Extra Time. “It was ridiculous.“For me, Wayne Rooney let the club down. He let his team-mates down tremendously and that’s not what a captain does.”last_img
