Rooney will be slaughtered at Everton
Wayne Rooney has been told he will be "slaughtered" by Everton supporters at the weekend, when Manchester United travel to Goodison Park. The England forward was at the centre of tabloid revelations this week after indiscretions in his private life, but put them to one side as he scored in England's 3-1 win over Switzerland on Tuesday night. He has shown little sign of his problems affecting his football, but the warm reception he got from England supporters is in stark contrast to what he can expect when he returns to the club where he started his career. "It should be amusing. On Merseyside Wayne always gets a little bit of stick and I'll be giving him a little bit as well if he plays on Saturday," said Jagielka. "I've spoken to him about it. All the boys in the England squad know who is playing who. "It is always interesting playing against people you've just been away with in the week. No doubt I'll give him a bit of banter if he plays. "There is a good chance he will get slaughtered. He normally gets quite a bit of stick anyway. I can't see that changing come Saturday."
