Rooney Tenders His Apology

Captain of the Three Lions, Wayne Rooney has apologised to Gareth Southgate and FA technical director Dan Ashworth over images which emerged of him over the weekend which were inappropriate for someone in his position.

Rooney's behaviour in the wake of the 3-0 win over Scotland last Friday made headlines in The Sun on Wednesday with allegations that the England and Manchester United captain was drinking heavily at a wedding party. The reports also provoked anger from his club manager Jose Mourinho, when he found out that Rooney had been with members of England's backroom staff into the early hours of Sunday morning.

A statement issued on Rooney's behalf read: “Naturally Wayne is sorry that pictures taken with fans have been published today. Although it was a day off for the whole squad and staff, he fully recognises that the images are inappropriate for someone in his position. Earlier today Wayne spoke privately to both Gareth Southgate and Dan Ashworth to unreservedly apologise. He would like to further extend that apology to any young fans who have seen these pictures.”
