Kemar Roofe has backed Manchester United attacker Wayne Rooney on Twitter, despite Leeds’ rivalry with the Red Devils.

The 31-year-old has received criticism this season following a number of poor performances and has even been dropped by manager Jose Mourinho.

However, he wowed fans once again with a goal and an assist in a 3-0 victory over Feyenoord on Thursday evening.

One particular supporter was Leeds attacker Roofe, who stated on his personal Twitter account that people need to stop doubting the England international.

Leeds supporters will not have been happy with the message from the 23-year-old given the rivalry.

However, Rooney is also the England captain and has drawn lots of attention from players and pundits alike this campaign.

Roofe made the switch to Elland Road from League Two side Oxford in the summer.

The Yorkshire giants splashed out on a sum of £3million for the young prospect, but he has so far struggled to settle into the in form side.

The former West Brom academy ace has played 20 times in all competitions, scoring once and providing two assists this campaign.

He has started his side’s last six fixtures and will be looking to keep his place for the clash against Rotherham on Saturday.

In other Leeds news, David Prutton has predicted the score in the cash against the Millers.
