Rooney charged with drink-driving
Rooney, 31, was stopped while driving a black Volkswagen Beetle in Wilmslow, Cheshire at 2 a.m. local time on Friday.
Rooney, who retired from international football earlier this month, is England’s highest ever goalscorer with 53 in 119 appearances.
He made 559 appearances for United during a 13-year stay at Old Trafford, before returning to Everton, where he began his career, at the start of this season.
During his time with United he won five English Premier League titles, the Champions League, Europa League and FA Cup. He is also United’s record goalscorer with 253 goals.
The striker has enjoyed an impressive start to the season, scoring his 200th Premier League goal in the recent 1-1 draw at Manchester City.
He also scored the only goal of the game in Everton’s 1-0 win over Stoke on the opening day of the season.
His form impressed England head coach Gareth Southgate who wanted Rooney to join up with the international squad for the upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Malta and Slovakia.
