Norway's Vegard Forren has been less than complimentary about the condition of new England captain Wayne Rooney.
The defender was speaking ahead of Wednesday's friendly match between the two sides.

Quote of the Day

“Rooney looks a bit chubby. They’re obviously good players, and many of them are on good form already after three games in the Premier League, but we’re looking forward to it.”

That’s fighting talk for most professional athletes, but Rooney, one suspects, will take ‘a bit chubby’ as a compliment.
