Wayne Rooney took to Facebook to defend against allegations that he had faked a head injury to get out of England duty. Rooney posted a graphic photo of his injury (seen above), and also included a message to debunk any rumors that he was fit to play in England’s qualifiers on Friday and Tuesday (not to mention Man U’s loss to Liverpool on Sunday) but choosing not to. From Facebook:
Some people seem to be questioning my commitment to the England squad and the fact I had to pull out of the 2 games. There’s nothing I would like more than to be helping the lads in the qualifiers. I’m sure people will see from these images the reason why I won’t be able to play.
Unless Rooney’s hired some top-tier makeup artists to do up his scalp, it seems like the case of his supposed non-injury is effectively closed at this point.
Here’s to hoping he had those famous hair plugs insured.
