Jagielka: Rooney Will Get Crowd Abuse

The England and Everton defender has told reporters that fellow country man Wayne Rooney will get abuse for Everton fans when they play Manchester United this weekend.

Rooney moved from Everton to Manchester United back in 2004 and is regularly jeered when he returns to Merseyside.

“It should be amusing,” said Jagielka. “On Merseyside Wayne always gets a little bit of stick and I’ll be giving him a little bit as well if he plays on Saturday.

“I’ve spoken to him about it. All the boys in the England squad know who is playing who.

“It is always interesting playing against people you’ve just been away with in the week.

“No doubt I’ll give him a bit of banter if he plays.

“There is a good chance he will get slaughtered. He normally gets quite a bit of stick anyway. I can’t see that changing come Saturday.”
