Former Netherlands international Ruud Gullit believes that Wayne Rooney let Manchester United down last season with his poor performances.

Former Netherlands international Ruud Gullit has expressed his belief that Wayne Rooney failed Manchester United last season.

The Red Devils recorded their lowest finish since the formation of the Premier League and ended the season without any silverware, which cost manager David Moyes his job.

Gullit is adamant that Rooney and other senior players at the club were at fault for the displays, and feels that that will take some explaining to new boss Louis van Gaal.

"I will be interested to see how things go between Van Gaal and Rooney," Gullit told The Sun.

"Rooney is one of the senior players who seriously failed this season, so how will that conversation go?"

United will not play in Europe in the 2014-15 campaign following their seventh-placed finish in the Premier League last season.
