Wayne Rooney: Roy Hodgson wanted Rebekah Vardy to 'calm down'

Former England captain Wayne Rooney revealed that Roy Hodgson wanted Rebekah Vardy to calm down during Euro 2016. Later, representatives of Vardy said that Rooney was talking nonsense. Rooney revealed that after Rebekah Vardy’s libel claim against her she had become a different wife and mother. In October 2019, Coleen Rooney claimed to have carried out a sting operation and subsequently accused Mrs. Vardy of leaking false stories of her personal life.

“They asked me, as captain, would I be able to speak to Mr. Vardy on issues regarding his wife and I think we all knew that it was an awkward subject,” Wayne Rooney said about Roy Hodgson. “I’d need to speak to Mr. Vardy and ask him to speak to his wife and ask him to say to ask his wife to calm down. As England captain, I would always try and protect the players in public as much as I could. Everyone knows the history between Liverpudlians and The Sun newspaper, I have never spoken to a Sun journalist on a personal level.”

“For me and my wife, we don’t want to be in this court. I’ve watched my wife over the last two and a half years really struggle with everything, becoming a different mother, a different wife. It’s been very traumatic for my wife,” Wayne Rooney said. “Hopefully, whatever the judgment is in this case, me, my wife, and our children can get on and live our lives because it was not something that we wanted to be part of.”
