Man Utd striker Rooney forced to travel separately from rest of England squad

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney travelled separately from the rest of the England squad for their flight to Switzerland.

Rooney's world was thrown into chaos yesterday morning by front page revelations about his private life.

Rooney remained with the squad despite yesterday's headlines.

An FA spokesman said: "Wayne has trained this morning and it is business as usual."

Rooney had to travel separately to training to avoid photographers and the fact that he spent Saturday afternoon at the team hotel playing golf would suggest he did not expect the allegations to be made between these two Euro 2012 qualifiers.
