Wayne Rooney was pictured on a night out with his mates last week and a lot of fuss was made of him smoking and urinating up a wall.

Some people even likened that behaviour to Anderson writing off his car after leaving a nightclub at 7am.

Following United’s 7-1 win last night, Sir Alex Ferguson was asked about Rooney’s antics.

“I am not getting into that,” said Ferguson. “He has only been training for six days but he impressed me. He will need more training before he plays full games but I will have to play him against Chelsea to bring him on in time for the game against Newcastle. By that time he would have played an international too, which could be a good thing.”
