Wayne Rooney tests NEGATIVE for coronavirus but is 'angry' at still having to isolate


Wayne Rooney tests NEGATIVE for coronavirus but is ‘angry and disappointed’ at still having to isolate for 14 days with his family after being visited by a friend who was later found to have tested positive for COVID-19

Wayne Rooney has tested negative for coronavirus but admits he is ‘angry and disappointed’ at having to miss upcoming games for Derby County due to self-isolation.  

England’s record goalscorer was visited at his home last Thursday by Josh Bardsley — the younger brother of Burnley defender Phil Bardsley — unaware that Bardsley Jnr had been contacted by NHS Test and Trace.

Bardsley later tested positive for Covid-19, but Rooney said on his Twitter page on Monday that he does not have the virus and said he was ‘delighted for myself and my family.’

However, the 34-year-old will still have to self-isolate with his family for 14 days, meaning he will mis Derby’s next three matches. 

He looks set to miss the trip to Huddersfield on Tuesday night, as well as games against Nottingham Forest on Friday and the home clash versus Cardiff next Wednesday. 

NHS guidelines state that you must self-isolate for 14 days if asked to by the NHS Test and Trace or the NHS COVID-19 appa.

The rules state: ‘Self-isolate for 14 days from the day you were last in contact with the person who tested positive for coronavirus – as it can take up to 14 days for symptoms to appear.’
