Rooney quizzed over 'nightclub brawl'
England striker Wayne Rooney is to be questioned by police investigating reports of a 5am brawl outside a nightclub, police said on Monday.
The 21-year-old Manchester United star will be interviewed by Greater Manchester Police over claims that a photographer was assaulted outside the club in Manchester city centre.
Rooney has not been arrested and the photographer did not require medical treatment, police said.
A spokesman for Greater Manchester Police said the alleged incident took place outside Panacea nightclub last month.
He said: 'An appointment will be made for a 21-year-old man to attend a Greater Manchester Police station to be questioned in connection with an incident on John Dalton Street on Sunday, October 15.'
He went on: 'Shortly after 5.05am on October 15, police received a report that a man had been assaulted on John Dalton Street in Manchester city centre.
'The man did not require medical treatment. Inquiries are continuing into the incident.'
United beat Wigan away on the Saturday afternoon. Rooney played in the match, but did not score.
