(Vine) Robin Van Persie Hilariously Mocked After Manchester United Name Wayne Rooney As Captain

A clip from Captain Phillips is taken to illustrate what will happen at training.

Manchester United have announced that Wayne Rooney will be the new club captain and take over the role from Nemanja Vidic.

Rooney was chosen ahead of fellow striker Robin van Persie – who was thought to be the other contender for the armband – and it hasn’t taken long for the Netherlands international to be mocked on social media.

This clip from the film Captain Phillips has been taken to show what the new skipper will say to van Persie in the dressing room on Wednesday.
