Rooney in Hot-Water?

Wayne Rooney may well have made himself a leading candidate for man of the match with his hat-trick display at Upton Park but the striker could also find himself in hot water.

After netting in the 78th minute Wayne was quite clearly heard mouthing obscenities which the Sky Sports microphones clearly picked up.

It`s still being decided whether the FA will charge Wayne with a FA spokesperson apparently remarking,

"We will look into it. We obviously do not condone foul or abusive language in front of the TV cameras."

Rooney has moved quickly to tray and diffuse the situation by issuing an apology, an apology which reads,

"I want to apologise for any offence that may have been caused by my goal celebration, especially any parents or children that were watching."

"Emotions were running high and on reflection my heat-of-the-moment reaction was inappropriate. It was not aimed at anyone in particular."

We wait with baited breath to see the outcome of this latest folly!

He apologised, let it be the end of it. He got caught up in the heat of the moment, scoring a hat-trick and getting us back into the game and a winning position for the first time throughout the match, emotions understandably flared.

Absolute rubbish Merlin, he should get away with it! Think of what fans chant and sing to players.His team are 2-0 down and he scores a hat trick to put his team back in front with 7 games to go in the title race and he's not supposed to be emotional or show passion or be fired up.What do we do on the terraces? Anyone thats played football at any level could resonate with him! He had a bad world cup and the english media need to get over it and stop the hate campaign! He suffered verbal abuse the whole game from the hammers fans! do you think they should be banned as i'm sure there were kids that were present at upton park that were subjected to obsenities from the home fans?

Agree totally with Java, give this guy a break, he had just pulled United from being 0-2 down, to winning the game, he is just a young lad, that has gone through tremendous pressure from the press, he was just venting what we all thought including the kids. what f...... what, we are United and what are you going to do about it, I for one, cannot see any harm done, the F word is used everywhere, it is not like Rooney is teaching them new words.. Lets not get too polished, football is a game of passion, and sometimes in situations like this, young players should be allowed some leniency.. What a performance though..

What a load of bollox, if i scored a hat trick for my team during the run in for the title coming from 2 nil down I would of smashed the camera and blurted out an vast array of supposed bad language at every opposing fan, player and manager and then on at the end of match interview I would of mocked chelsea, arsenal, city, liverpool and so on, its football ffs, if we allow this pc corporate wholesome family entertainment *****e to take over our game say goodbye to football as we know it and say hello to americanised nickelodeon kick ball. Well done Rooney, but next time have the expletive filled speech prepared before hand it will sound more eloquent and such.
