Rooney launches his life so far

When Authentic Prada Messenger Bag For Sale Wayne Rooney stalked out of the World Cup under the shadow of a red card and Black Prada Eyeglass Case pursued by a wink from Cristiano Ronaldo he did not look like a man in a hurry to forgive and forget. Everything about the striker’s career so About Prada Products far has been accelerated, however, from a Premiership debut aged 16 to his first autobiography four years on. So six weeks after Gelsenkirchen it comes as no surprise to find Rooney calling for mercy on his Manchester United team-mate’s behalf.

On Tuesday at Oxford United the winger received a taste of what is to come this season when he took his pre-season bow to a barrage of abuse. It promises to become drearily routine at Premiership grounds in the coming months, with perhaps only the City of Manchester Stadium and Anfield likely to afford him a warm if tongue-in-cheek welcome.

Rooney wishes it were otherwise but amid the warm words there is a speck of Bicester Village Apertura Outlet Prada Montevarchi Prada Online gratitude that Ronaldo’s conduct ensured the Portuguese carried the can for England’s dismal departure from Germany.

“Whenever England don’t do well in a World Cup people look for a scapegoat and unfortunately a lot of people have turned to Cristiano,” Rooney said yesterday at the launch of his Bergdorf Goodman Prada Mens Shoes autobiography. “I spoke to him the night of the game and there were no problems. I’m not going to lie and say I wasn’t disappointed with his involvement but that’s in the past.”

If Rooney’s World Cup dismissal was an obvious punctuation mark in a career, it has not brought pause for thought. He Authentic Prada Bags For Cheap says that he will go to his grave protesting that the stamp on Ricardo Carvalho that got him sent off in Germany was accidental and he protested his innocence over the red card he received Authentic Prada Bag For Sale Philippines against Porto in Amsterdam a week ago. “I play football the way I see it, I won’t change,” he said. “In the Premier League Black Prada Bag With Gold refs let it go a bit but foreign refs pull the game up and they get the cards out too.”

The consequences of the latest red card might be minimal, with the FA likely to look kindly on the appeal against a three-match suspension Manchester United will lodge today. Should it be overturned, Rooney will be free to concentrate on a season he says is crucial for his club. His return to England colours in a competitive match will have to wait, with a two-match suspension to be served, but he is hopeful that, when he does resume in the No9 shirt for his country prada bags prices, he will do so alongside another striker.

Rooney’s solo role in Germany is credited with adding to Authentic Prada Trainers his frustration, though a dip in his own high standards may have been as much to blame. “To be honest I think I prefer to play up front in a two and it was hard playing up front on my own. I would like to have had someone up there with me, for support more than anything else. But Steve [McClaren] knows the players well and he knows what they feel and hopefully he can have a system with more attacking players.”

As things stand Rooney will also be carrying the weight of United’s goalscoring responsibility and he bemoaned the departure of Ruud van Nistelrooy, who averaged 30 goals a season in his five years at Old Trafford.

Characteristically Rooney suggests himself as the solution but his impatience is clear. “I think we’ve got the talent and the quality but we have to win it this year. United are one of the biggest clubs in the world and to go three or four seasons without winning the league is not good enough.” Should they fail, Rooney is likely to be in less forgiving mood next summer.
