Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney could be banned for tomorrow’s match at Chelsea.
The FA will decide today whether to charge him with violent conduct after an apparent elbow on Wigan’s James McCarthy on Saturday, and could suspend him for three matches, which would also include Sunday’s game against Liverpool at Anfield and an FA Cup clash with Arsenal should the Gunners get past Leyton Orient on Wednesday.
Referee Mark Clattenburg said he thought the foul was an accident, but Rooney could be charged with violent conduct if the official admits he made mistake when he submits his match report. (IMScouting)
It will be interesting if Mark Clattenburg decides to re-think his opinion of the incident that took place at the DW Stadium on Saturday. See below the video of when Wayne Rooney and James McCarthy collide and decide if you think the England striker deliberately struck the Wigan man in the head with his elbow, if you think he did then you would also surely deem it a red card offence, no?
The good news for Sir Alex Ferguson is that if Rooney is suspended the Old Trafford boss can bring back Premier League top scorer Dimitar Berbatov into the mix and clearly after scoring twice against Wigan, Javier Hernandez is also very much in form.
