Embarrassing photos and a video of former Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney were shared online. However, the 35-year-old former soccer star called the police over the incident as he claimed that he was “set up.”

The matter was reported to Greater Manchester Police as a possible crime, Mirror reported. Rooney’s agent Paul Stretford refused to comment on the social media photos on Sunday. The outlet also informed that the ace footballer had directed his calls to PR expert Ian Monk.

The pictures show Rooney upright but asleep in a chair between two nearby women. Another woman is seen lying on a bed in the background. Wine glasses and bottles can also be seen in the photos. The women in question are pictured semi-naked only in their underwear.

In another snap he is seen awake and holding a half-full wine glass. Scratches and blood are visible on Rooney’s knuckles.

The former player reportedly partied into the early hours of Sunday with Snapchat model Tayler Ryan and her friends Elise Melvin and Brooke Morgan, Daily Mail reported. All the women are 21. The model shared photos of her sitting with Rooney on a couch with her 13,000 Instagram followers. Her Instagram status is now private

The girls reportedly played pranks on Rooney after he fell asleep. The video clip has a timestamp reading “8.30” but no indication as to whether it is am or pm. It doesn’t say the exact date when the footage was captured. The model and her friends are believed to be from Barrow-in-Furness in Cumbria.

The pictures appear to have been taken Saturday night, just after the Derby County manager’s side lost 2-1 to Salford City in a pre-season friendly. The video clip has been shared on Twitter and fans have circulated them around messaging services like WhatsApp. The video has reportedly been viewed over 175,000 times.

Meanwhile, there is no suggestion Rooney did anything untoward or behaved inappropriately. The former Manchester United centre forward is now manager of Derby County having initially taken over on a caretaker basis in November 2020.

Rooney has been married to English author and television personality Coleen for 12 years. They have been together for nearly 20 years and share four sons together.
