Wayne Rooney deserves more respect

Post by Khaneasy on Tue Oct 11, 2016 11:29 am

Former England captain John Terry has
called on fans to show more respect for
"great player and man" Wayne Rooney when
England face Slovenia on Tuesday.
Interim England manager Gareth Southgate
has dropped Rooney to the bench for the
World Cup qualifier in Ljubljana.
Southgate's decision came after Rooney was
booed by a section of the crowd during the
2-0 win over Malta at Wembley on Saturday,
and the 30-year-old Manchester United
captain later said he was going through a
"difficult period."
But Chelsea defender Terry wrote on
Instagram: "Wayne Rooney -- England's
highest record goalscorer in the history of our
game. Soon to be the most capped player our
great country has ever produced.
Wayne Rooney England's highest record
goalscorer in the history of our game. Soon
to be the most capped player our great
country has ever produced. One of the very
best players I have seen and had the pleasure
playing with in my lifetime and a man who
has given everything for England. An absolute
LEGEND at Everton,Man Utd,England and
world football. We should all show more
respect to this great player and man. Let's all
get behind Wayne and the England team
tomorrow. @waynerooney ������⚽️

Rooney's wife Coleen took to Twitter on
Monday to urge England supporters to focus
on backing the team rather than criticising
him.
And addressing the booing of Rooney at
Wembley, Southgate said: "If you look at the
number of games and his goal-scoring feats
for England... I don't quite understand that.
"Every debate focuses on him. The onus on
him is enormous. The criticism of him is, at
times, unfair. But he ploughs on and plays
with pride, captaining his country with pride.
"I don't understand it [the booing]. But that
seems to be the landscape. I have no idea
how that is expected to help him."
