Rooney slams Tyler over `anti-Man U` commentary in Cardiff game
London – Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has hit out at Sky commentator Martin Tyler for continuously referring to a nasty tackle that he made during a 2-2 draw with Cardiff City in the Premier League.
According to the Mirror, the England striker found the net with a deflected shot on 15 minutes but was lucky not to have been sent off eight minutes earlier for kicking Jordan Mutch on the back of the leg.
Having watched the game back, Rooney said he accepted that his tackle was bad but was aggrieved that veteran mic man Tyler kept referring to it, the report said.
He also highlighted a later incident in the match in which Cardiff midfielder Gary Medel raised his hands to the face of United’s Marouane Fellaini as the duo jostled in the area, the report added.
Rooney tweeted that Tyler had not shut up about it at all during the game, adding that he likes the commentator but that was poor from him.
Frazier Campbell levelled for Cardiff after 33 minutes before Patrice Evra restored United’s lead just before the interval, according to the report.
However, Kim Bo-Kyung headed home in the 90th minute to earn a share of the spoils for the Bluebirds, the report mentioned.
