Rooney apologises for outburst

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has apologised for swearing into a television camera during Saturday's win over West Ham.

The England striker uttered an audible expletive following the completion of his hat-trick at Upton Park, which helped United come from 2-0 down to win 4-2.

He said: "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 have been doing it for the last 20 years. Just look at the 98/99 season against Tottenham, Forrest, Juventus, Bayern etc. You would have thought you would be used to it by now.

In Sir Alex I Trust, United We Stand!

It's a good attribute to have. I do miss the days when we won comfortably sometimes lol. but it does make games much more entertaining like this

Why did he react like that, i know he was excited but he didnt have to react like that...


To be honest, when we scored the 3rd goal even I was swearing in delight, it's just a heat of the moment thing.

He must get annoyed with all you muppets and the media constantly doubting us. You think you lot would have learned by now.

I think it was towards all the journalists mostly as well as the people who had doubted him. Immature but he's apologised

Good to see passion from the players. Not sure why the cameramen leave the sound on. it's quite obvious that the language is not going to be good in such an atmosphere
