Wayne Rooney says he is "angry and disappointed" that he will miss matches for Championship side Derby as he forced into a period of self-isolation despite posting a negative Covid-19 test result.
The Sun newspaper reported on Sunday that the 34-year-old was angry after his friend visited him at his home on Thursday to give him a watch even though he should have been self-isolating. The friend later returned a positive test.
In a statement on Twitter, Rooney said: "Just received the news that my Covid-19 test has shown I do not have the virus.
"Delighted for myself and family but obviously angry and disappointed that I now have to self-isolate and miss vital games for @dcfcofficial."
