Football legend Wayne Rooney has apologised to his family and Derby after leaked images of him in a hotel room with a group of young women went viral online.
On Tuesday, the Cheshire Police stated they will not take action against a complaint of blackmail made by Rooney’s representatives.
Reacting to the leaked photos, Rooney apologized to his family over the images on Wednesday evening, July 28. He described his action as a “mistake” after the Championship club’s friendly against Real Betis.
He said; “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.”
