Man United fans have been calling for Wayne Rooney to be dropped for some time now, and whilst Louis Van Gaal didnâ€™t have the minerals to do it, it appears Jose Mourinho has.
Following Saturdayâ€™s derby defeat to Man City, Mourinho has shaken up the team with a number of players, including Wayne Rooney, being left in England as the side travelled to Holland to kick off their Europa League campaign against Feyenoord.
Joining Rooney at home is the injuredÂ Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Jesse Lingard, both of whom were hooked at half time as well as full backs Luke Shaw and Antonio Valencia.
There was an outpouring of joy and gifs as the news emerged, so here are some of the best tweets in regards to Rooneyâ€™s axing:

Oh my goodness a manager has actually dropped Wayne Rooney. This is why Jose was the perfect choice for Man United.
