Photos: Wayne Rooney arrives for training in chauffeur-driven car
Football star, Wayne Rooney arrived at Everton’s Finch Farm training ground in a chauffeur-driven car following his driving ban for drink-driving.
Wayne Rooney faces a bill of up to £120,000 to have a chauffeur drive him to and from Everton’s training ground following his driving ban for drink driving.
The former England captain arrived slumped down in a Range Rover at Everton’s Finch Farm training ground this morning on the second of his 730 days banned from the road.
He left in the same vehicle five hours later as he gets used to spending time in the passenger seat.
Rooney issued a grovelling apology yesterday after he was given a two-year ban for being almost three times the drink-drive limit when he was stopped at the wheel of a car with Laura Simpson, a woman he had just met in a nightclub.
The footballer, whose marriage to wife Coleen now hangs in the balance, faces having to be driven the 75-mile round trip to training and back, as well getting lifts to matches and to his community service.
To add insult to injury, the route will take him past the Symposium nightclub in Wilmslow, Cheshire from where he drove Miss Simpson home and his night of shame began.
Yesterday’s hearing was told that his club, Everton, are likely to fine him two weeks wages, or around £300,000, for his actions.
