It was a tough wake-up call for Wayne Rooney. After a drunken evening in a nightclub, then in a hotel room, the former Manchester United striker found himself on the front page of the British tabloids, in the company of three young women. In photos and videos unveiled in particular on social networks, where we see the English football star asleep on a chair, with model Tayler Ryan at his side and her friends Elise Melvin and Brooke Morgan. If he cries out at the attempted extortion with these photos, Wayne Rooney has publicly apologized to his wife Coleen and their four children.
“I made a mistake. I went to a private party with two friends. And I would like to apologize to my family and the club for the images that have circulated”, commented Wayne Rooney at the microphone of Sky Sports , relayed by The Mirror. While he explains that he now wants to “move forward”, the footballer has however announced that he has lodged a complaint with the Manchester police after being, according to him, an attempt at blackmail. If the police initially warned that they would not follow up on this complaint, an investigation was finally opened at the request of the footballer’s lawyers, reports the Daily Mail.
Who is Wayne Rooney’s wife Coleen?
Retired as a footballer since last January, Wayne Rooney was subsequently confirmed as head coach by Derby County. After helping the Rams save their place in the Championship (D2) last season, the 35-year-old technician is now preparing for the resumption of the championship and the reception of Huddersfield on August 7. Bad publicity which he would have done well, while his wife Coleen, journalist and personality on English television, has not yet reacted to the controversy.
