Over the weekend, photos of the Manchester United legend passed out in the company of three women garnered attention on social media.

There was an initial complaint of blackmail reportedly filed by Rooney’s team but Sky Sport has since confirmed that Cheshire Police would not be pursuing the matter further.

Rooney initially believed there was a malicious attempt to entrap him using the images.

On the evening of Wednesday, July 28, Rooney issued an apology to his wife and club.

"I made a mistake," he told Sky Sports News after his side's friendly victory against Real Betis.

The 35-year old also thanked Derby for the opportunity to allow him to keep his job despite the controversy.

"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,” he added.
