Slovenia manager Srecko Katanec unsurprised at England's plans to drop Wayne Rooney: 'He is not the youngest and his form has taken a little dip'
Slovenia manager Srecko Katanec would not be surprised if Wayne Rooney is dropped by England as 'he is not the youngest and his form has taken a little dip'.
Rooney's place in the side has been under scrutiny since England's abject departure from Euro 2016 and Sportsmail understand interim manager Gareth Southgate has dropped his captain for the game in Ljubljana on Tuesday night.
It would be a big statement for Southgate to make in only his second game in charge, but his opposite number is prepared for such an outcome.
