Rooney Says Lay Off Ronaldo

Rooney Says Lay Off Ronaldo

Wayne Rooney has defended team mate Cristiano Ronaldo and told fans to lay off the Portuguese international once again saying he has no problems with the player despite this summers 'incident'.

Rooney said 'I would rather he didn't get any stick. You don't want to see any player get booed. I am not going to lie, I was disappointed with his involvement in the sending off. But that is in the past now. I think he's big enough to deal with anything that comes his way. You saw that the other night. Cristiano got booed but he still scored two fantastic goals.'

However he admits that Ronaldo will face the backlash explaining: 'Unfortunately, whenever England don't do well in a World Cup or a major tournament, people look for a scapegoat. This year, people turned on Cristiano. But I like Cristiano. We`re good friends off the pitch. There is no problem with him. Now, we are both playing for Manchester United and trying to do our best for them.'

Talking about Ronaldo, with fears for his security, he has moved into Dwight Yorkes £3million mansion. The Sun say the mansion in Alderly Edge is 'hidden away off a country lane behind huge gates. The house is very secure with nine outdoor cameras.'

Since the World Cup he has had to put up with his windows being smashed where he currently lives in Woodford, Cheshire.
