Wayne Rooney won’t be able to drive cars for two years

The Everton star has been banned from driving for two years following his conviction for drink-driving.

The Everton star has also been ordered to pay £170 together with a 12-month community order and perform 100 hours of unpaid work.

This is mostly an unfortunate event for the ex-captain as he is known to be a car enthusiast and owns expensive vehicles.

The 31-year-old has issued an apology in his official Wayne Rooney site after the hearing where he asked for forgiveness for his mistakes.

“I want publicly to apologise for my unforgivable lack of judgment in driving while over the legal limit. It was completely wrong.

“I have already said sorry to my family, my manager and chairman and everyone at Everton FC. Now I want to apologise to all the fans and everyone else who has followed and supported me throughout my career.

“Of course I accept the sentence of the court and hope that I can make some amends through my community service.”

Rooney was accompanied by a small entourage when he appeared at Stockport Magistrates’ Court where Rooney’s legal team asked District Judge John Temperley to consider not to give the Everton player a community order as he is already doing charitable work.

However, judge Temperley was not convinced of imposing a large fine “would have the same effect.”

And while Rooney will just pay £170, he may have to pay a large fine to Everton amounting to two weeks wages which are around £300,000.

“This is a serious matter… you placed yourself and other road users at risk as a result of your poor judgement that night.

“I accept your remorse is genuine and that you are aware of the adverse affects the events of that night have had, not least on your family.”
