Not for the faint-hearted: Wayne Rooney posts a photo of his horrific head injury to Facebook

Last weekend Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney was ruled out for three weeks with a cut to the head.

Usually a cut to the head doesn’t keep a player out for very long but this one is understandably keeping him out for longer.

As can be seen in the photo posted to his personal Facebook account, the gash is pretty huge.

He reportedly picked up the injury during a challenge with the monstrous Phil Jones at United training.

This isn’t the first time Rooney has received a huge cut to his body, getting a huge cut to his leg in the first game of last season.
