Man Utd star Rooney: Young unfairly treated

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has jumped to the defence of Ashley Young. Young has sparked a dive storm over his recent antics.

"I think that whenever anything happens with any United players it gets more press than players from other teams," Rooney told MUTV.

"It's difficult for forwards. At times you are trying to get out of the way of getting kicked and people just think you've dived.

"Obviously no one likes to see [diving] in the game, but the game is so quick these days it's difficult for referees to get some of these decisions right."
