Wayne Rooney Unleashed Expletive-Filled Rant To Assistant Referee After Being Subbed Off

Wayne Rooney Unleashed Expletive-Filled Rant To Assistant Referee After Being Subbed Off

Wayne Rooney looks like a man who can't wait see the back of the MLS having gone crazy at the fourth official in D.C United's defeat to Vancouver Whitecaps.

England's all-time record goalscorer was replaced by Ola Kamara in the 72nd minute of the 1-0 and was in the face of the official, repeatedly fuming, "Every f***king game" before eventually walking away.

The standard of refereeing wasn't Rooney's only issue in the MLS as after the game he took to Twitter to moan about the travel arrangements his side had to deal with ahead of the visit of New York Red Bulls in midweek.

The league primarily opt for commercial flights instead of charter flights, making the journey and schedule much more hectic for players.

Rooney, who has scored 23 goals for D.C after making the move across the pond, won't be in the MLS for much longer as he has agreed a deal to return to England with Derby County.

The 33-year old signed a 18-month contract as a player-coach under new boss Phillip Cocu and is expected to earn around £100,000-a-week at Pride Park - five times the average wage in the second tier of English football.

He will join up with the Rams in January and begin the start of his coaching career with the club as part of the transfer. Rather controversially, he is to wear the No.32 - due to a massive sponsorship deal with 32Red that was announced shortly after the Rooney signing was confirmed.
