Venables: Pitch best place for Man Utd striker Rooney

Former England boss Terry Venables doesn't expect any press scandal to affect the form of Manchester United star Wayne Rooney tonight.

In his column for The Sun, Venables wrote: "While there may be question marks over the way he handled his responsibilities in his private life, Rooney is a player who realises what his professional responsibilities are.

"With the tornado of revelations and emotions currently enveloping his private life, the football pitch - even for an international of tonight's huge importance - is probably the safest place for him.

"A calm sanctuary where he can forget all his troubles and return to being Wayne Rooney The Footballer. The Wayne Rooney we all know and love.

"For 90 minutes at least."
