With the Zambian players and coaching staff still celebrating their surprise African Cup of Nations victory in a hugely dramatic penalty shoot-out in Libreville, Wayne Rooney decided to provide us all with a fine example of the unsporting, unpleasant and ungracious.

The United striker, no doubt in between polishing his massive collection of Euro and World Cup winner’s medals, was apparently delighted to see Yaya and Kolo Touré lose in the final. He Tweeted:

“zzzzzzzzzzz pga golf is on. Come on boys. Funny that 2 toures was there all the way and lost. Haha.”

It’s not as though Mr. Rooney has ever under-performed himself at a major finals in Africa, has he? Ahem.

    You have a point about those in glass houses but as somebody who has never underperformed in a major tournament, I also found the spectacle quite funny. Mainly the fact that all these unheralded players put their penalties away perfectly only for the so-called big names to fuck it up. You could tell Kolo Toure was going to miss from his stupidly long run-up. Also seeing Gervinho in the centre circle shitting it knowing he was going to have to take a penalty sooner rather than later made me chuckle too.

    Boy, am I glad that I CHOSE to be a City supporter.

    When confronted with the alternative… Accept no substitutes.

    Not really irony. More hypocrisy.

    Also Wayne Rooney being a tit is hardly news. We all know what he’s like!

  7. Alexander says:

    Everybody knows by now how limited Rooney is, but why telling it to the world again and again? Human stupidity has no limits…

  8. Alex says:

    Will they shake hands next manchester derby?!?!?!

    You can pay for hair, but you can’t buy class.

  10. Tinez says:

    Balotelli will no doubt tell the brothers to get a shirt with this printed on it, only to reveal after the title winning match.

  11. dan says:

    He’s right about the golf though. That’s a sport never designed to be spectated, that is.

  12. Tim Lovejoy says:

    Had Fergie not capitulated to the blackmail and paid up, he would have been teammates with those two.

  13. Mr Sensible says:

    I loved the fact that a Chelsea, Arsenal and City player missed all the penalties last night. Go Zambia!

  14. man_dildo says:

    HAHAHAA i laughed hard too. Feel bad for Drogba (who is also a rival) but just because Toure brothers are Shitty players (especially that scumbag Yaya) i was glad Ivory Coast lost and i support Rooney in making his feelings about it public.
    No class?
    My ass no class.

  15. fouldsy says:

    but im sure he was polishing his premier league, fa cup, league cup, and champions league medals!

  16. SS says:

    If he wasn’t a professional football player, god only knows where he might have ended up. His grammar is shocking.

  17. aspers says:

  18. Robbie Savage says:

    A guy called @man_dildo just informed us of the lack of class in his ass

  19. Dan says:
