Rooney’s wayward shot against Wolves broke nine-year old’s wrist

Jamie-Thomas-Wayne-RooneyWhat next for poor Wayne Rooney? There goes that saying when a striker is not wearing his scoring boots and just can’t seem to score a goal, that he won’t even score in a brothel. Well that’s not entirely true as we all know how Wayne scored a granny in a brother a while back. Anyway, enjoy his latest gaffe.

A young football fanatic will never forget his first-ever Manchester United match – a wayward shot from Wayne Rooney broke his wrist.

Nine-year-old Jamie Thomas was in the stands at Molineux last Sunday when he tried to block Rooney’s splitting strike during the warm-up before United’s 5-0 Barclays Premier League win.

He was sat in the front row of the Jack Harris Stand with his Dad but missed most of the match as he was attended to by first aiders before being taken to hospital.

It is understood Rooney is not aware of the incident but young Shropshire lad Jamie now has his hand in plaster for the next month.

‘The players were warming up and Rooney and Hernandez were taking a few shots. Rooney missed one and it was coming straight towards Jamie so he put out his hands to stop it hitting him and it broke his wrist,’ Jamie’s father Andy told the Shropshire Star.

‘At first we thought it was just bruising but Jamie wasn’t enjoying the game so we went to first aid. We ended up missing most of the second half.

‘It was his first Man Utd game and we were in the Wolves end because somebody got us tickets.

‘They wanted us to go to Wolverhampton hospital but we were catching the train so we went to Shrewsbury instead.

‘They said it was a clean break and he has to go back in a couple of weeks.’

The saga has not put the youngster off from going to more games, however, and his Dad believes Rooney would have apologised immediately had he have known about it.

‘It shook him up a bit but he’s fine about it now and I don’t think it’s put him off going to other games,’ he added.

‘I don’t think Rooney realised what he had done otherwise I am sure he would have come over.’
