Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney slams 'disgraceful' media coverage of drinking incident

I don't think the association has to be responsible.

It hasn't been a good week for England and Manchester United star Wayne Rooney, as more details of his drunken night on Friday emerged.

The headlines that followed went on to question the professionalism of the England skipper who is desperately low on confidence and struggling to find his best form.

Rooney has said he will retire after the World Cup in Russian Federation in 2018 and would face an uncertain time on the worldwide stage until then if he lost the England captaincy.

"What's been going on is disgraceful", Rooney was quoted as saying by the Guardian in immediate aftermath of United's 1-1 draw against Arsenal. "I learned since I was a kid that if someone lends me a pencil or something I have to take even better care of it than if it was mine", he said.

"It shows a lack of respect and I think enough to enough".

Tennis is the ultimate "life comes at you fast" sport, and these last few months reinforced that. Andy Murray closed out the year by winning five events in a row.

Mourinho also claimed that the English media doesn't give him the respect he deserves, having won three Premier League titles in the country, while looking ahead to facing his old rival Arsene Wenger once again.

Wayne Rooney has apologized after "inappropriate" photos of him at a hotel party were released but the England captain has been defended by Liverpool boss Juergen Klopp who said all the games greats "drank like devils".

"But if you go one by one to see where these 23 players were, some of them were in worse places than the hotel bar".

Guardiola also said he was relieved that his City players had returned unscathed from worldwide duty and hinted he might ring the changes for Saturday's Premier League clash at Crystal Palace. Although the Portuguese has never lost a competitive game in 13 meetings with Wenger, United will be weakened on Saturday by the suspension OF Zlatan Ibrahimovic and injuries to Eric Bailly, Chris Smalling and Antonio Valencia. "After our work on the training field and in the meetings we've had I feel we're definitely going in the right direction", Henderson added.

"I am saying that he is my player, a young player with potential".
