Wayne Rooney hammers MLS after x-rated ‘f**k’ rant at officials
Wayne Rooney’s appears to be growing frustrated with life in the MLS judging by his latest Twitter outburst.
D.C. are in a dismal run of form, having won just two of their previous nine matches.
Rooney was involved in a furious altercation with the fourth official during D.C. United’s 1-0 defeat to the Whitecaps.
The former Manchester United star appeared to swear at Pierre-Luc Lauziere as he was replaced by Ola Kamara on 74 minutes.
He repeatedly shouted “Every f***ing game” before eventually heading to the bench.
“Gutted about result last night,” he tweeted. “We deserved more.
“Looking forward to a 12 hour travel day which could be done in 6 but hey this is mls.
“We will get ready for red bulls Wednesday. #Charterflights #msl”
Losing to New York Red Bulls on Wednesday could see Rooney and co. drop out of the play-off spots.
He is the latest high-profile player to criticise MLS, following Zlatan Ibrahimovic‘s recent outbursts.
The LA Galaxy striker slammed the league’s playoff system, which followed a claim that he was being “hunted.”
Ibrahimovic linked up well with Galaxy’s new signing Cristian Pavon during their 2-0 win over FC Dallas.
He later said the Argentina international, who has previously been linked with Arsenal, is “too good for MLS.”
Rooney’s former side Manchester United take on Wolves in the Premier League tonight (8pm).
