United - Ferdinand Has His Say

United - Ferdinand Has His Say

Wayne Rooney gave an impeccable display last night and despite some provocation refused to be drawn into any ugly battles.

As early as the second minute Rooney was caught late by Michael Essien but, after shaking off the pain, got on with things.

A similar tackle in the second half, this time from Ramires, saw Rooney grimacing but finally getting on with things.

His goal celebration was, how you might say different, but fell within the boundaries of the laws of the game.

After the game, Rio Ferdinand, who made a great return from injury, gave his views on the recent public flogging dished out to Rooney, remarking,

"We should follow him as a footballer rather than keep lynching him for a lot of the stuff that goes on."

"I wouldn`t say he is innocent in a lot of the stuff that has happened but sometimes, because of the player he is, and who he is, the reaction can be over the top."

"Wayne Rooney swearing on TV, as much as I don`t condone it, is not front-page news."

"There are bigger things going on in the world, things happening in Libya and the Ivory Coast, and we are talking about Wayne Rooney on the front pages because he swore at a camera."


Exactly! But it is precisely how the tabloid press behave in this land of ours!

The media needs a scapegoat and unfortunately Rooney keeps on giving them one. Ferdinand is not wrong though, there's more pressing issues in the world than what Rooney did, does or is going to do.
