Wayne Rooney apologizes for Oscar kick, says it was accidental before accepting MOTM

Wayne Rooney had a mixed game tonight.

Restored to the starting lineup after having been benched for the Boxing Day game at Stoke, the United captain was champing at the bit, and made a great start to the game.

But he blew out of steam by the second half, and looked like he had nothing left in the tank when he missed two easy chances.

He also could have been sent off for a reckless kick on Oscar – which he claimed was accidental in his post-match interview.

Rooney recognized that he could have injured Oscar, and apologized for his recklessness, before accepting the Man of the Match award given to him by his mates Scholes and Rio.
