Everton boss Ronald Koeman discusses Wayne Rooney drink-driving situation, status for Tottenham

Everton manager Ronald Koeman has this afternoon revealed his ‘disappointment’ with Wayne Rooney following the English striker’s drink-driving charge last week.

Surprise story

News broke over the weekend that Manchester United legend Rooney had been charged with drink-driving after being pulled over at 2AM on Friday night following a night out in Liverpool.

He was later released on bail, and will appear at Stockport magistrates court on September 18th.

Questions have since been asked of the 31-year-old’s professionalism and commitment to the cause following his summer return to Everton, with Toffees boss Ronald Koeman speaking out on the topic for the first time today.

Spurs clash

Koeman was speaking ahead of his side’s Premier League matchup with Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday afternoon, and admitted that he was ‘very disappointed’ to hear of his star man’s misdemeanours.

‘I’m very disappointed by the situation. We have spoken last Tuesday.’

‘Any disciplinary matter will be dealt with by the club at the appropriate time.

However, Koeman also confirmed that Rooney ‘will play this Saturday.’
