There is widespread criticism of all parties involved with different critics presenting their perspective on the iffy situation at Manchester United.
On just his 18th appearance for DC, Rooney lined one up and subsequently stuck away a lovely 30-yard freekick which ultimately proved to be the only goal of the game...
'That would never be allowed to happen, ' Rooney told the Men In Blazers TV show on NBCSN.
He spent most of his time at the club under the management of Sir Alex Ferguson, who most United fans dearly miss since he called it time on his managerial career in 2013.
Amid suggestions of unrest in the Old Trafford dressing room - with rifts said to have grown between manager Jose Mourinho and players such as Paul Pogba and Alexis Sanchez - Rooney has claimed that no such situation would have been allowed to develop during his time at the club. The players had the trust of the manager to do that themselves'.
It's the sort of moment-of-inspiration that has been in short supply at Rooney's former club Man Utd this season.
Wayne Rooney has revealed that a cabal of senior players "controlled the Manchester United dressing room" to ensure new signings didn't upset the highly successful team dynamic. "But we actually weren't", he explained. We did it to Arsenal.
'We had the team built to hit teams on the break and we were devastating at it'.
