Rooney‚Äôs quick temper has got him into big ¬≠trouble in the past, most notably when he was sent off for lashing out ¬≠at Montenegro‚Äôs ¬≠Miodrag Dzudovic in a Euro 2012 qualifier, ¬≠missing the opening two games at the tournament as a ¬≠result.
‚ÄúI have got to say that ¬≠ it is part of the game,‚ÄĚ said Hodgson.
‚ÄúI have got to judge Wayne in the last 19 months, since I first met him and worked with him.
‚ÄúSince I have been here, he has hardly got a yellow card, really.
‚ÄúHe is very keen to play for England, he is as ¬≠disciplined as he can be, but, like all players, I am afraid there will probably come a time (when he ¬≠loses his cool).
‚ÄúI‚Äôm very fortunate in that we‚Äôve got senior ¬≠players, of which he‚Äôs one, who do have a big ¬≠influence.
‚ÄúTheir thoughts on things and the way they approach things does have an influence on the group, so a Wayne ¬≠Rooney in this sort of form would be very good.
‚ÄúHe was no problem at all in the Euros. Our ¬≠problem in the Euros was that unfortunately he had been suspended and when he came to us, he was ¬≠training when the rest of them were playing matches."
