Wayne Rooney

Allardyce doesn’t blame Rooney for being angry at substitution

Rooney-LennonEverton manager Sam Allardyce says he doesn’t blame Wayne Rooney for being angry at being taken off in the Merseyside derby but says that nobody is too big to be substituted.

Rooney was clearly seen saying “F*&k off Sam” following by “F&^king bull*&^t” after being taken off and refusing to shake his manager’s hand just before the hour mark.

“We needed more legs,” said Allardyce.

“Wayne, as talented as he is on the ball, we needed to be able to get around the pitch a bit more and he’s done his job.

“Gana’s got himself fit but not 100% fit so he was always going to get at least 30 minutes today.

“Nobody’s too big to be brought off!

“He’s bound to be disappointed, there’s no doubt about that.

“I make the decisions and those decisions – I think – have made the team more of an attacking force today and gave us the opportunity to win the game.

“You’ve got to do the right thing to help the team as manager and I thought we did the right thing today to make those changes.”
