RASMUS HOJLUND left Wayne Rooney out of his all-time Manchester United five-a-side team.
Hojlund, 21, has been enjoying a stunning new lease on life at United ever since he broke his Premier League scoring hoodoo against Aston Villa last month with five goals in his last five matches.
The striker is finally meeting the Red Devils’ demands, which he always knew were sky high as he’s been following the club since a young age.
That is why picking his best five-a-side team of all time was not difficult for the Denmark international, but it did involve a few surprise omissions.
It came as no surprise that Hojlund picked Danish legend Peter Schmeichel in goal.
The centre-forward then opted for Rio Ferdinand in defence but left the England great’s legendary partner Nemanja Vidic out as his choices were very limited.

The Dane concluded with Paul Scholes, Ryan Giggs and Cristiano Ronaldo, meaning United’s record goalscorer Rooney was left out.
Hojlund told The United Stand: “I need to put Peter in goal. Peter is Danish.
“Peter won everything here. Peter is a legend here but is also a legend in Denmark because he won the Euros for us.
“I need to put Rio in there because he’s very memorable to me. I would love to put Vidic in there, but I can only have one defender.

“I want to put Ryan Giggs in there, Paul Scholes and then Cristiano Ronaldo up front.”
Hojlund has registered a total of 10 goals and two assists in 28 appearances with United so far this season.
The ex-Atalanta star will be looking to extend his goalscoring streak on Sunday at Villa Park.
