Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney admits that he deserved to lose his place in Jose Mourinho's starting lineup.

Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney has admitted that he deserved to lose his place in the team.

The 30-year-old has been left out of the starting lineup in his side's last three matches following criticism of his performances during last month's 3-1 defeat to Watford.

Rooney insists that he understood Jose Mourinho's decision, and is willing to be patient as he looks to work his way back into the starting XI.

"[Mourinho and I] chat every day. I've said before, I knew the Watford game I didn't play well. I didn't deserve to play the next game, I understood that, and the team have done well, so I have to bide my time and take my chance," he told reporters.

"My career will be determined on what we won as a team. I am not a player who is happy to not to win as a team but to get individual trophies.

"I have never been that sort of player. I am proud of the trophies we have won as a team. That is the way I am now. I want to play football. I love football, whether it is scoring or not."

Rooney, who is currently on international duty with England, will be hopeful of returning to the side for United's Premier League clash with Liverpool on October 17.
