Ferguson Defends Rooney

Ferguson Defends Rooney

It remains to be seen whether Wayne Rooney faces disciplinary action after the incident with the Wigan midfielder, James McCarthy.

Certainly, those on 'Match of the Day' were pretty quick to condemn the England striker.

Sir Alex Ferguson though had his own thoughts on the matter, commenting after the 4-0 win at the DW Stadium,

"Because it`s Rooney, people will raise a campaign to get him hung by Tuesday or electrocuted or something like that. It`s unbelievable. People will try and get him up before the FA because that`s what they always do in these situations when it`s Wayne Rooney."

"Referee Mark Clattenburg saw it and said it was an accident, there`s nothing to it."

"We have big games coming up and people will try to make an issue of it."

"But we just have to concentrate and focus on our game."


Hopefully, it`ll all blow over!

What would you expect Fergie to say? What manager would condemn their player? Rooney wasn't right in what he did but Fergie isn't wrong when he say's that this will be the catalyst for another ABU crusade that will undermine a good performance from both sides.

People are always saying that the FA are inconsistent when it comes to United. Lets hope they finally stick with the precedents they have set for our rivals - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m0ML3eseP4M&feature=related

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yeaON2fLeno - because Rooney's the animal who gets away with it, fans need to take a look at their own sides and their incidents before commenting on others.

Slur's comments are ridiculous. He should get the standard 3 game ban. No witch hunt, no ABU crusade, no biterness, just a case of common sense should prevail and he and Slur should accept the ban he deserves.

Either all on pitch thuggery is dealt with or none at all I'm sick of the FA Utd conspiracy bs, if you are going to crucify Rooney for this act of thuggery well do not make excuses when one of your own does the same, as the you tube vid tuscan linked to shows its happens at other places rather than just at Utd games but still in the age of vid cam's all of them should be held to account.

Anybody decent would condemn Rooney. That is the problem with football...a complete lack of decency from top to bottom.

Also, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vk0-CGrOWjg --- A much more recent elbow of Gerrards which didn't quite grasp the attention as that of Rooneys and also escaped a red card.

sorry but Fergie cant defend somthing like that. Agree with Bluedub ,Rooney scored a brill goal last week and took the praise now he must take the flack from an appalling incident.Could have been a lot worse for McCarthy
