Wayne Rooney Provides Proof Of His Fearsome Forehead Gash (Gory Photo – Not For The Faint-Hearted!)

By Chris Wright

Wayne Rooney has just posted photographic proof of the hideous cut he suffered in training last week on his personal Facebook page in response to the growing number of doubters who seemed to thing the Manchester United man was using it as an excuse to drop out of England’s game on Friday.

WARNING: It’s probably too late if you’ve already come this far, but this thing ain’t pretty…and the cut isn’t particularly pleasant viewing either…


Rooney added the following comment above the photos:

“Some people seem to be questioning my commitment to the England squad and the fact I had to pull out of the 2 games.

“There’s nothing I would like more than to be helping the lads in the qualifiers. I’m sure people will see from these images the reason why I won’t be able to play.”

Yeesh. Okay Wayne, we believe you.

    That hair transplant was worth every penny, no?

    stitch it up and wear the goofy cech helmet for a few weeks. i couldn’t care less about england qualifiers, but i wouldn’t go defending myself with a photo of a scratch on my head.

    He looks like Harry Potter!

    I suppose he could technically wear some hardcore bandages and still play?

    I mean, I had a nasty gash quite similar on my arm a few years ago from a work accident.

    It cut right down to the muscle, you could see the tendons move when I used my fingers.

    I went to A&E that afternoon, got it stitched up and was back to work the next day with a nice safe bandage around the wound.

    Then again, I suppose Wayne’s profession is a bit different to general shop work…

    I did something almost exactly the same (not get kicked by the headless chicken Phil Jones)
    and although I can’t stand Rooney, I have to defend him; there is no way he can play so soon after that, way too painful, no chance he could head the ball.

  11. Rob says:

    I’ve got to quote James Richardson from the Football Weekly podcast,
    “He’s got an ugly gash on his face, probably not for the first time either!”

    Thats pretty nasty. What fuck the David Moyes’ training regimen consists of? Hunger Games?

    Terry Butcher would like a word… ;-)
