Rooney dropped by Man United

Rooney dropped by Man United

Wayne Rooney was dropped from Manchester United's squad for Saturday's match at former club Everton because manager Alex Ferguson feared fans would abuse the striker who is facing an alleged sex scandal.
The 24-year-old Rooney has faced a week of lurid headlines since a prostitute claimed in several papers last Sunday that he cheated repeatedly on his then-pregnant wife Coleen with her last year.
Despite Rooney playing _ and scoring _ for England on Tuesday in a 3-1 victory in Switzerland, he would probably have faced a hostile reception on Saturday at Everton, the Premier League rival he left six years ago.
Ferguson says "we made the decision simply because Wayne gets terrible abuse here and we're not going to subject him to it."
