Rooney has been given the armband on a permanent basis by new boss Louis van Gaal, with Darren Fletcher named as vice-captain.

The England man is also believed to be among the candidates for the Three Lions’ captaincy, with Steven Gerrard having retired from international duty.

But while some Manchester United fans seem pleased at the responsibility handed to the striker, many have hit out at Van Gaal’s decision, pointing at Rooney’s less-than-impressive disciplinary record and previous transfer requests.
