Wayne Rooney has disclosed that the Football Association has issued him a warning after he admitted to ‘wearing long studs’ for a game in order to ‘harm someone.’
In a recent interview, Wayne Rooney said that he once purposefully wore lengthier studs for a game and “made a hole in John Terry’s foot.”
The Derby manager, who led Manchester United to five Premier League titles and a Champions League, admitted the Blues were ‘better’ than his team at the time, therefore he went out with the purpose of inflicting injury on his opponents.
“I used to wear the old plastic studs with the metal point,” Rooney told the Mail on Sunday. “But for that game, I changed into large, long metal ones, the utmost length you could have because I wanted to attempt to damage someone, to try to injure someone.”
“I did it because John Terry was on crutches when he exited the stadium.” After the game, I signed my jersey to him and put a hole on his foot… I sent it to him a few weeks later and requested for my stud back!”
The regulatory board then demanded an explanation, and he has now revealed that he has been cautioned about his future behavior.
“I, obviously, submitted my response to the FA, they’ve given me a warning and that’s it, the matter’s been put to bed so we can go on from that,” Rooney said before of Peterborough’s Championship visit to Pride Park.
“It is what it is,” says the narrator. The FA… It was clearly reported, and they had to investigate. I was given a warning. That’s all there is to it; now we can go on. “The problem is now closed, and I am satisfied.”

“I think such comments were isolated,” the current Derby manager said. By the way, I’m not trying to promote the documentary, but I believe you’ll have to watch it to understand why those remarks were made.
“It’s a lot more than those statements and my desire to harm a player, John Terry, who is a buddy of mine.” I would never try to harm John Terry on purpose.
“It goes far deeper than those remarks, and if you watch the video, you’ll see why.”
