Posted on his Twitter account, the picture shows Rooney on his sofa at home
with his right leg bandaged above the knee. The six-inch wound in his right
thigh cut to the bone and required stitching under a general anaesthetic.
Twitter: Wayne Rooney - Thanks for all the messages of support. Gutted to be out for a while but my leg will be ok which is the main thing http://t.co/98yTtndc
In a message alongside the picture he wrote:
"Thanks for all the messages of support. Gutted to be out for a while but
my leg will be ok which is the main thing."
Rooney's t-shirt features the Latin saying Virescit Vulnere Virtus, translated
as "Courage becomes greater through a wound."
