London: Manchester United forward Wayne Rooney might have been left on the bench for Sunday's League Cup final against Southampton, but that did not stop the star from taking to Twitter to post a celebration picture with his teammates after the victory.

Rooney’s post on Twitter read: “Winners 😀🏆 #mufc”.

Just days after pledging his immediate future to the club, the 31-year-old failed to find a place in the starting line-up at Wembley.

Amid reports of a possible move to the lucrative Chinese Super League, Rooney issued a statement this week insisting his future lies at Old Trafford, at least until the end of the season.

Rooney had hoped for a place in the starting line-up at Wembley after United playmaker Henrikh Mkhitaryan was ruled out with an injury suffered in the midweek Europa League clash with Saint Etienne.

But United manager Jose Mourinho opted for Juan Mata, Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial as the attacking support for central striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Mata was included after flying back to England on Saturday evening following his grandfather's funeral in Spain.

United, bidding for the first major silverware of Mourinho's reign, were captained by Chris Smalling in Rooney's absence, while world-record signing Paul Pogba started in midfield.
