English professional football manager and former player, Wayne Rooney has apologised to his family and Derby after leaked images of him that emerged from a private party.
The married father-of-four, 35, said he was ‘looking forward to moving forward’ just hours after he paid the three party girls £1 to buy the copyright to the images after accusing them of blackmail, prompting them to offer an apology.
Speaking to Sky Sports after the Championship club’s friendly against Real Betis Rooney said:
“I made a mistake.”
“I went to a private party with two of my friends and from me, I’d like to apologise to my family and the club for the images which were going round and I want to move forward on this.”
“I’m grateful to Derby County for giving me this opportunity to get this club back to where it belongs, and I’ll do everything in my power to make sure I do that.”
‘It’s dealt with. I’m looking forward to moving forward and preparing for another game.’
