Wayne Rooney's four-letter rant could mean football games ban

5th April 2011 - Chad Lazarus

Manchester United forward Wayne Rooney looks set to miss his side's next two domestic football games.

The England star has been charged with using foul and offensive language during United 4-2 win over West Ham on Saturday (April 2nd).

After completing his hat-trick, Rooney went over to a television camera and swore repeatedly directly into the lens.

The Football Association has now decided to take action and if the player accepts the charge he will be banned for the football games against Fulham in the Premier League and the FA Cup semi-final against Manchester City.

Rooney was quick to apologise after the game, insisting he knew what he had done was wrong.

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

League leaders Manchester United moved seven points clear of second-placed Arsenal with their win against West Ham, although the Gunners have a game in hand and welcome United to the Emirates Stadium on May 1st.
