Manchester United Ask For Wayne Rooney’s Punishment Announcement To Be Delayed – FA Agree

Old Trafford club will learn the outcome today but Wembley chiefs will not tell us until tomorrow.

The Football Association will adhere to the request of Manchester United and not reveal the outcome of Wayne Rooney’s appeal until tomorrow.

The 25-year-old is awaiting news on the punishment for his improper conduct charge following his foul-mouthed rant at a TV camera in the victory at West Ham.

Rooney admitted the charge but has appealed against the automatic two-game ban that he will receive as a consequence.

The England international at present will miss the home Premier League game with Fulham and the FA Cup semi-final against Manchester City at Wembley.

The FA board are meeting now to discuss his case and an outcome will be reached later today.

The Red Devils will be notified of their decision but the rest of us will have to wait until 10am tomorrow.

United requested the FA to do this and the governing body is sympathetic about the timing, coming hours before the Champions League quarter-final against Chelsea.

Rooney could see his ban either reduced or increased depending if the FA consider his appeal to be frivolous or not.

The former Everton player believes the swiftness of his apology and the fact his comments were not directed at anyone in particular should work in his favour.
