Wayne Rooney Tells Didier Drogba To Cut Out Play-Acting – Hypocrite?

By on April 19, 2012

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney joined in the calls for Chelsea striker Didier Drogba to stop the play-acting and stay on his feet.

Drogba was in action on Wednesday night for the Blues during a stunning 1-0 win over Barcelona in the first leg of their Champions League semi final. The Ivorian showed the good side of his game by netting the vital winner just before half time, and the powerful forward was a threat on the rare occasion Chelsea put an attack together.

However, his performance was marred by a series of over-the-top falls and amateur dramatics which drew criticism from all corners of the footballing world, including United striker Wayne Rooney.

During the game, Rooney took to his official Twitter account to say “Drogba. Your a good player but pls get up.”

Rooney then drew criticism himself for being a hypocrite, after some Twitter followers replied reminding Rooney that his Man Utd team-mate Ashley Young could also do with staying on his feet at times.

What do you think, is Rooney right for telling Drogba to stay on his feet? Or has he no place to hand out advice given the fact his own team mates are under scrutiny for diving? Get involved in the comments section….

    Wow, of all people to speak, it’s Wayne Rooney??? Talk about hypocrisy at the highest level. Rooney, you dive when you are barely touched, and then talk about your on the pitch violence towards your opponents! You should’nt even be playing football, you should be banned. How dare you talk about someone else?
