Manchester United’s record goal scorer Wayne Rooney expressed his displeasure over the media after their comprehensive win over Reading in the FA cup third round. Rooney equalled Sir Bobby Charlton’s record of ‘most number of goals for Manchester United in all competitions’ by opening the scoring against Reading.
The English forward took lesser games that Charlton to achieve this feat. But the talk of the night in the media wasn’t his record breaking goal, but about George Evans refusing Rooney’s shirt.
After the game, Wayne Rooney got ready to gift his shirt to George Evans, but the player neglected that and walked towards his dressing room. Media took this incident as a humiliation against Wayne Rooney and treated this as a headline material.
The infuriated Red Devils forward wrote a tweet on his timeline about this act from the media. George Evans responded back in some time clearing the incident.
Evans mentioned that he wasn’t happy about the match result and added that he requested Rooney to swap shirt in the tunnel. George also congratulated Rooney for his goal scoring record in his twitter handle.
