FA to investigate Manchester United's Wayne Rooney for swearing


• FA to make decision tomorrow on Wayne Rooney
• Striker swore at camera while celebrating hat-trick




Wayne Rooney can expect to discover on Monday whether he will face disciplinary action for his swearing into a television camera as he celebrated his hat-trick at West Ham United.

The Manchester United forward's three goals yesterday helped his team to a 4-2 victory at Upton Park, which took them seven points clear at the top of the Premier League.

But, after completing his treble, the striker uttered an audible expletive into a television camera as he celebrated. The Football Association's director Sir Trevor Brooking confirmed on Sunday morning that the governing body will be investigating Rooney's behaviour.


"Tomorrow there will be a decision," he told BBC Radio 5 Live's Sportsweek programme. "It was a surprise, after scoring a hat-trick, to react that way. It is something we will have to look at."

Rooney has already apologised for swearing and his outburst prompted an on-air apology from the broadcaster Sky Sports.

In a statement released by United, Rooney 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."

His team-mate Rio Ferdinand sprang to the striker's defence on Twitter, saying the media should "give Wayne a break". The defender wrote: "newspapers+radio,come on give wayne a break he knows what he did was wrong and he has apologised,spoke 2 him this morning+genuinely sorry.

Ferdinand added: "Are football stadiums 'no swearing' zones?! When I take my kids to a football match I'm getting him headphones coz swearing is rife!"
