Sutter: Swiss will not trash talk Man Utd striker Rooney

Young Boys fullback Scott Sutter doesn't expect any wind-ups from Switzerland players tonight aimed at England's Manchester United star Wayne Rooney. Enfield-born Sutter has sympathy for Rooney over his current plight.

He said: "There will not be any sledging.

"I wouldn't do it and I don't think my team-mates would trash their way through a game to try and get to the opposition.

"I don't know what someone like Rooney goes through every day.

"Maybe it is in the back of his mind that something like this could happen.

"It is on a much smaller scale but even I know when I go out I have to be careful about what I get up to.

"As a footballer, you have a responsibility, although when you are on the pitch you tend to forget about everything anyway."
