Manchester United accept Wayne Rooney FA charge but appeal two-match ban after TV camera outburst

The FA have confirmed that Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has accepted a charge for using offensive language to a television camera during the club's 4-2 win over West Ham, although the Red Devils have appealed against a two-match ban.

The story is too old to be commented.

Professional Footballers' Association chief executive, Gordon Taylor;

"Whilst the use of foul and abusive language is not condoned, there is an acceptance by all parties within the game that 'industrial language' is commonly used."

"If sanctions are to be imposed in such circumstances then this has to be done in a balanced and consistent manner, and participants made aware of this fundamental change in approach."

So, no santions stand at the moment and the charges have been completely fabricated.
