​Manchester United legend Roy Keane has said that current captain Wayne Rooney's career at the club is over after he was snubbed for the second leg of the Europa League against Anderlecht. 


The Red Devils secured a hard-fought 2-1 win in extra time over the Belgian side in the second leg of their quarter-final, progressing to the last four 3-2 on aggregate. 


Rooney was included in the squad for the match by manager Jose Mourinho after the striker successfully recovered from an ankle injury. 


However, once Zlatan Ibrahimovic suffered a knee injury, the Portuguese tactician chose to bring on Anthony Martial, rather than Rooney, as United went in search of the all-important goal.



Speaking on iTV Sport, as reported by ​Mirror, Keane said, "In terms of the bigger picture, that is the end of Wayne at United. He will contribute from now until the end of the season but that is the final nail in the coffin for him." 


He added, "He must be fuming, he'll be like a mad man. If he isn't then he has lost the eye of the tiger."

Wayne Rooney has been linked with an exit from the Old Trafford outfit ever since he lost his place in the starting line-up. He was linked with moves to both the Chinese Super League and Major League Soccer, but moved to deny all such rumours. 


Of late, reports have emerged linking him with a return to his boyhood club, Everton, with their manager Ronald Koeman also having said that he would be happy to have Rooney join the Toffees.
