Wayne Rooney Headed to US to Heal and Hide

Wayne Rooney to Heal Injury in US

Rooiney's ankle injury has sidelined him for the past three weeks.

Roon's has just returned from R&R at a lavish resort in Dubai. Apparently happy to get out town again, he will leave England on Saturday, the day after the town of Edenbridge is planning on burning a 50-foot effigy of him on Guy Fawkes Night.

Wayne Rooney, Manchester United's highest paid player, is planning to spend the next week in the United States. Hi- profile Rooney will continue his recovery in team sponsor Nike’s training facility in Portland Oregon, away from the glare of public and media attention.

Rooney has been the subject of scandal since allegations of him cheating on his pregnant wife with prostitutes were made public by the media. He seemed to get down on himself since last summer’s World Cup and went on a drinking spree.

Roons recently signed a lucrative, five-year contract extension with Man Utd just days after announcing he’d be leaving the club.
