A Cheeky Little Wayne Rooney Article
The FA confirmed today that Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney will miss the next two domestic games, which includes the FA Cup semi-final against Manchester City.
The official FA statement reads...
A Regulatory Commission has suspended Manchester United's Wayne Rooney for two matches.
Rooney had admitted a charge for the use of offensive, insulting and / or abusive language, but claimed that the automatic penalty of two games was clearly excessive.
The Commission did not accept the claim and Rooney will begin the standard two match suspension with immediate effect.
The charge relates to an incident during his side's fixture with West Ham United at the Boleyn Ground on Saturday 2 April 2011.
VMC members have had a few things to say on the very subject. Click here for details.
