Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney was alleged to have tested positive for alcohol at training and that is responsible for him being dropped from the squad to Germany instead of injury as earlier reported.
Twitter went agog with the news from a very popular twitter account @utdreport, who claimed that alcohol was found in the Red Devils Captain’s blood during a routine test.
There are no official words from Manchester United or from the players’ campaign but some fans didn’t really care as they left their opinions known. @utdreport: ‘During blood tests at Carrington, Wayne Rooney had alcohol in his samples. He is not injured [red issue].’
@gary302: ‘Wayne Rooney turning up for training Brahms & Liszt twice. If true he’s history I’d imagine. We’re in a right fucking mess aren’t we?
@Hende_11: If it’s true and it is Wayne Rooney. He needs sacking on the spot.
@Baramenyn: Why would anyone be surprised about Wayne Rooney turning up to training worse for wear?
@theleonwilliams: Twitter rife with rumours regarding Wayne Rooney’s absence from the team. Might actually be internally suspended.
@FEELZ: Strip the band!!! RT @utdreport: During blood tests at Carrington, Wayne Rooney had alcohol in his samples. He is not injured [red issue]
@loicremm: Alcohol traces in your blood samples? Some captain you are mate. Leading by example and all… Get out of our club.
@KingIssyy: what are you playing at ??? Turned up to training drunk ?!!! Absolute disgrace! You’ve let all the united fans down!!
Manchester United will be without their Captain for the trip to Germany to face Wolfsburg in their final Group B match of the Champions League.
