Rooney Charged For Swearing, Could Sit For 2

Yes, we all know that Man U striker Wayne Rooney can be, shall we say, a little intense when he's playing on the pitch...

He did it again when he scored a hat trick over the weekend against West Ham
((HT: EPL/Youtube))

His corporate bosses were less than pleased...

He is facing a two-match ban...

"The FA has today charged Manchester United's Wayne Rooney for the use of offensive, insulting and/or abusive language," the governing body said in a statement.

There was no comment from United, but defender Rio Ferdinand asked on his Twitter account: "So, just for clarification is swearing banned on the pitch totally??"

Rooney has until Tuesday to appeal. If he accepts the suspension/ban, he will miss the Premier League match against Fulham and the FA Cup semifinal against Manchester City on April 16.
