Bilic blames the FA

Bilic told The Sun: “Rooney is in crisis because his career lacks consistency and continuity.

“He is a great talent but it seems that he’s either injured or being punished by the English FA.

“Maybe he’s not playing to his maximum at the moment but don’t forget that he suffered a serious injury last season and was not really ready for the World Cup.

“Every time he gets into the swing it seems that he stops again.”
