Derby boss Rooney: The day I lost it with dancing Pogba and Lingard at Man Utd

Derby boss Wayne Rooney has recalled losing his rag with former Manchester United teammates Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard.

The trio shared a dressing room together during the 2016/17 season under Jose Mourinho.

Rooney wrote for The Times, "I do remember one time, coming into training at United the day after a defeat, still feeling very annoyed and walking into the dressing room with Michael Carrick.

"We found Jesse and Paul dancing in there with the music on. I went over, turned it off and took the speakers out of the dressing room — because that's my mindset, that's how I've grown up in football.

"Paul and Jesse accepted it, because I was the senior player, but in hindsight they were not doing anything wrong, not hurting anyone, and it was just my old-school mentality kicking in.

"As Rio Ferdinand has said, players of our generation just have to get used to this generation and what has changed."
