Wayne Rooney

On December 8, 2015 we published an article falsely alleging that Wayne Rooney was dropped from the Manchester United squad for their fixtures with West Ham United and Wolfsburg as he turned up to training with alcohol in his system.

This allegation was completely false and we apologised to Wayne for its publication. 

We have since paid him damages and legal costs and we are pleased to report that this matter has settled amicably.
