Agent Reveals Man Utd Star’s ‘sad’ Decision
WAYNE ROONEY is considering refusing to pose for photographs for fans, according to his agent Paul Stretford.
Wayne Rooney found himself in hot water earlier this month after The Sun published pictures of the striker drunk on England duty.
Manchester United striker Rooney posed for snaps with supporters at The Grove Hotel in Watford, where England were staying after their 3-0 win over Scotland.
But the 31-year-old is now reviewing his policy of stopping for selfies and is weighing up the controversial move to ban them altogether.
Rooney’s representative Stretford told The Mirror: “Undoubtedly one of the sad byproducts of this whole situation and everything Wayne has had to deal with since the night after the Scotland game means we are having to review the whole process of when he’s in public in his own time.
“Wayne has always been open to agreeing to pictures in public and enjoys engaging with the public as a normal person.
“That said, while 99.9 per cent of people who approach Wayne are entirely genuine in their motives, sadly there’s a small minority with a their own agenda who want pictures of him for an entirely different purpose.”
Rooney was again left on the bench by Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho yesterday for their 1-1 home draw with West Ham.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic cancelled out Diafro Sakho’s early opener at Old Trafford but Rooney could not help United nick victory after coming on in the 65th minute.
Rooney has played 22 games for club and country this season, scoring three goals.
