Rooney avoids big payout in court battle over fees

Rooney avoids big payout in court battle over fees

A judge says Wayne Rooney will have to pay 90,000 pounds ($137,000) to his agent's former management company but not the 4.3 million pounds ($6.6 million) it was demanding from the England striker.
Rooney was accused in court of withholding commission on multimillion pound deals brokered by management firm Proactive, which used to represent him.
The Manchester United player made no payments after agent Paul Stretford left Proactive acrimoniously in 2008, taking the firm's star client with him.
Judge Brendan Hegarty ruled Thursday that Proactive was entitled only to a "restitutional remedy" from Rooney and his wife, Coleen, amounting to around 90,000 pounds.
Rooney said the case was "an attempt to exploit" him and his wife.
