The FA have confirmed that Wayne Rooney will be banned for two games after he swore at the camera in United’s 4-2 victory over West Ham at the weekend.
Rooney has until 6pm on Tuesday to respond to the charge. If Rooney accepts the ban it means he will miss this weekend’s home game against Fulham as well as our FA Cup semi-final against City.
Sadly, this is the latest of a long list of occasions when the FA have chosen to make an example out of a United player.
