Wayne Rooney's DC United fail to score in third successive game with new boss desperate to seal Benteke transfer | The SunAugust 14, 2022
WAYNE ROONEY suffered his second defeat as DC United boss on Saturday, leaving the club seven points adrift at the bottom of the MLS Eastern Conference.
The England legend, 36, took over as United boss in July – less than one month after quitting Derby County.
He got off to a flying start as The Black and Reds earned a dramatic 2-1 win over Orlando City earlier this month.
But things quickly took a turn as the following week DC suffered a 3-0 defeat to Charlotte.
A 0-0 draw with New York Red Bulls then did no favours for the club as the point gained failed to close the gap on Atlanta United.
Now Rooney and his squad find themselves rock bottom of the table.

And to make matters worse, they failed to score for the third successive match when they were subject to a 1-0 defeat to New England Revolution at the weekend.
Carles Gil scored the decisive goal within the opening 20 minutes, but DC failed to get back into the game.
Rooney is now eager to bring in Christian Benteke to aid with the club's goal drought.
Benteke was announced as DC United's latest summer signing last week after leaving Crystal Palace.

The 31-year-old has signed a two-and-a-half-year deal with the club, but he is yet to have a work visa approved.
