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.
