Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney greeted former teammate Andreas Pereira with a slap after the Red Devils’ 3-0 win against Derby County in the FA Cup last night.
As the players were greeting each other on the pitch after the full-time whistle blew, Rooney gave Pereira a cheeky little slap on the face.
Of course we’re sure this was meant in a playful and respectful manner, it’s just a very strange way for someone to greet a former teammate.
Take a look at Rooney’s surprise method of greeting below:

Nice to see Rooney doing the right things after the finale whistle. Ignoring Lingard, giving Williams the time to speak to him and slapping Pereira round the chops! https://t.co/6cVbLiHBek
