Wayne Rooney’s wife, Coleen, has issued a statement to say she is standing by him after he was caught drink-driving in the company of another woman.
The Everton player and former England captain was stopped by police while three times over the legal limit in September. He pleaded guilty to drink driving and was ordered to undertake community service. He had been drinking in a Cheshire bar with Laura Simpson, an office worker, and was driving her car.
Coleen, who is pregnant with the couple’s fourth child, was on holiday in Spain at the time. On her return, she was photographed without her wedding ring.
In a lengthy and candid Facebook post, Coleen said she is trying to make the marriage work and blamed her husband’s “stupid mistakes” on alcohol - adding that money can't buy happiness.
