Everton FC’s Wayne Rooney was pleaded guilty from the British court due to drink-driving. The player received a two-year driving ban and was ordered to perform 100 hours of unpaid work as part of a 12-month community order.

Right after the sentence was released the former England captain Wayne Rooney was apologetic for his “unforgivable lack of judgment”.

The player also stated: “I have already said sorry to my family, my manager, and chairman and everyone at Everton FC. Now I want to apologize to all the fans and everyone else who has followed and supported me throughout my career.”

The British star knows that he is in the spotlight, especially due to his recent move from Manchester United to his boyhood club Everton FC. The 31-year old striker was arrested on September 1 because he was driving when he was almost three times the legal limit.
