United star says sorry for taking a tumble.
Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney apologised to Preston goalkeeper Thorsten Stuckmann for winning the controversial penalty that gave side passage into the next round of the FA Cup on Monday night, the Daily Mirror reports.
As the players exited the pitch following the full time whistle, Rooney was spotted shaking hands with Stuckmann shaking hands and appearing apologetic.
And a source confirmed on Tuesday that the England international actually apologised for the tumble that earned the German custodian a booking.
“At the end of the game, Rooney went over to Thorsten and said, ‘Sorry, but I saw you coming and I had to get out of the way’,” a Preston insider claimed.
