The FA have slapped England players with a curfew after the furore surrounding Wayne Rooney’s night out after England’s 3-0 win over Scotland.
Rooney was photographed looking “worse for wear” on Saturday night, which England players were given as free time after their easy win against the Scots.
Rooney has since issued an apology, but that won’t stop the FA taking action.
The Mirror reports that “furious Football Association chiefs have banned players from having nights out while on England duty”, and claim that there will now be a 5pm curfew for players when they get a day off on international duty.
Rooney was accompanied in his antics by Everton centre back Phil Jagielka, and other FA staff. It is not reported whether they have apologised or been punished.
The Mirror also mention that Jose Mourinho, Rooney’s club manager at Manchester United, is furious with Rooney and the FA for being so lackadaisical. In a separate piece, they claim that Mourinho is angry enough to drop Rooney for this Saturday’s game against Arsenal.
