Wayne Rooney has been left out of the Manchester United squad to travel to Rotterdam for the Europa League tie with Feynoord on Thursday night.

The Manchester United and England captain trained with the squad at the Aon Training Complex on Wednesday, but was left out of the travelling squad along with Luke Shaw and Antonio Valencia for the European opener.

Jesse Lingard and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, who were both taken off at half-time during the defeat to Manchester City at the weekend, have also been left out as Jose Mourinho looks to utilise his squad in Holland, while Phil Jones is injured.

Marcus Rashford could be set for a first start of the season, while Matteo Darmian, Timothy Fosu-Mensah, Marcos Rojo, Michael Carrick and Memphis Depay may also be included having failed to make the derby day squad.

Bravo sets social media alight with Old Trafford gaffe

Manchester City goalkeeper Claudio Bravo's debut gaffe was the most-tweeted about moment of the season so far, generating 33,000 posts per minute.

The campaign may only be in its infancy but Saturday's derby had social media alight with activity as Pep Guardiola's men triumphed 2-1 at Manchester United.

Kevin De Bruyne opened the scoring and then hit the post, from which Kelechi Iheanacho tapped home from close range - a moment that led to 24,500 tweets per minute.

However, that paled into insignificance compared to Bravo flapping at Wayne Rooney's free-kick, allowing Zlatan Ibrahimovic to thunder home.

That moment led to 33,000 posts per minute - the most tweeted moment of the season so far, 8,000 higher than the second-most spoken about incident.

In all, the Manchester derby was posted about 1.7million times on Twitter, with Paul Pogba, somewhat surprisingly, the most-mentioned individual.

Man United legend Gary Neville may never coach again

Gary Neville says it will be "very difficult" for him to get back into coaching because he has so many other commitments.

The former Man United defender was dismissed by Valencia after 16 matches in charge last season when he could only guide them to three victories in that period.

Along with some of his former United team-mate, Neville is a part-owner of Northern Premier League side Salford City, while he also has various other interests in the hospitality industry.

Speaking to Sky Sports, he said:

I always say 'never say never' because my love of football is too great, but I genuinely believe it will be very difficult for me to go back into coaching because of my commitment now to so many different things.

It's my obligation to deliver Salford City to the Football League. It's my obligation to roll out Hotel Football internationally.

It's my obligation to deliver high-end restaurants with Michael O'Hare. It's my obligation to deliver St Michael's, which I believe is the best development in Manchester.

I can't go back into coaching now in the short term – the next five years – and the reality of it is I don't want to. It could be that I'm no longer ever a coach in football but that's not a loss. Some people might think it is but the fact of the matter is it's not to me.

– Former Valencia manager Gary Neville
