FA to decide on Rooney swear charge

Wayne Rooney will discover on Monday whether he will be charged by the Football Association for swearing as he celebrated his hat-trick against West Ham.

Having inspired Manchester United's comeback from being 2-0 down at half-time against West Ham to win 4-2, it is no surprise to see Rooney plastered across the back pages of the morning's newspapers.

But it is the striker's conduct that is under scrutiny, not his attacking prowess, after he said an expletive into a television camera when celebrating his third goal, leading Sky Sports to issue an on-air apology.

Rooney apologised for his behaviour and said "emotions were running high", but the FA is examining the incident.

FA director Sir Trevor Brooking said a decision on whether to charge Rooney will be taken on Monday.

"Tomorrow [Monday] there will be a decision," Brooking told BBC Radio 5 Live's Sportsweek Programme. "It was a surprise, after scoring a hat-trick, to react that way. It is something we will have to look at."
