Everton forward Rooney handed two-year driving ban

Everton forward Rooney handed two-year driving ban”

Wayne Rooney has been fined two weeks wages by Everton after his conviction for drink-driving. It was completely wrong.

Rooney was pulled over early in the morning September 1 and found to have a blood alcohol level almost three times the legal limit.

"I have already said sorry to my family, my manager and chairman and everyone at Everton FC".

A breathalyzer test showed Rooney's alcohol level was 104 micrograms in 100 millilitres of breath. The drink-drive limit is 35 microgrammes.

The judge said he was not convinced a large fine would have the same effect as community service.

The striker, who is reportedly trying to convince wife Coleen not to divorce him, was also ordered to pay £170 when he appeared at Stockport Magistrates' Court.

Rooney announced in August he was retiring from national team duty, ending a 14-year stint in which he became England's top scorer with 53 goals.

Rooney rejoined his boyhood club this summer after spending 13 years at Manchester United, becoming the Red Devils' all-time record goalscorer during that time.

EITC is one of the UK's top sporting charities and considered one of the Premier League's leading community schemes, delivering over 40 programmes covering a range of social issues and supporting over 20,000 of the most vulnerable and underprivileged individuals across Merseyside each year.
