Wayne Rooney decided to take one out of his former national skipper John Terry’s playbook after the Manchester United skipper went ahead to lift the trophy despite not playing the match.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic inspired the Red Devils to a not so dominant win in the final of the EFL Cup final against Southampton at the Wembley Stadium.

However, Rooney decided to go full John Terry as he went on the podium to collect the trophy wearing full colours.

The blues skipper wore his full kit despite the fact that he was suspended for the final.

It was although an exciting moment for Rooney, who could very well be lifting his last trophy with Manchester United, with rumours of him making a summer move to China becoming stronger everyday.

The England skipper has been linked with Chinese Super League clubs and he recently revealed that he had rejected a mega money move to the far east in order to stay in the Premier League.

However, if United want their long-serving skipper to move-on then there won’t be a short-coming of suitors.

Rooney’s former club Everton are also interested in re-signing him, and the last minute snub in the match might have made the Old Trafford’s highest scoring strikers mind.
