Rooney Accepts Charge But Appeals Length Of Ban

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has accepted the FA's charge but he will appeal against the severity of the ban.

Rooney was charged by the FA for the use of offensive, insulting and / or abusive language after swearing into a television camera during Man United's 4-2 win over West Ham.

A statement released by the FA read:

"Manchester United player Wayne Rooney has today admitted a charge for the use of offensive, insulting and / or abusive language.

"However, Rooney has submitted a claim that the automatic penalty of two games is clearly excessive. A commission will hear the submission tomorrow (Wednesday).

"The charge relates to an incident during his side’s fixture with West Ham United at the Boleyn Ground on Saturday 2 April 2011."

One Response so far.

    Knowing the FA and the love they have for United lmao they will more than likely add a game on making him miss the Newcastle game too. Im hoping for the best but fearing the worst.
