Simon Jordan slams Wayne Rooney for leaving Derby County
Former Crystal Palace owner, Simon Jordan, has slammed Manchester United icon, Wayne Rooney, describing the former striker as a "bloody fool" for leaving Derby County amid their ongoing financial struggles.
The 36-year-old Rooney left his role at Derby County on Friday following 19 months in charge.

“You’ve got an owner that’s coming in there – he’s bought the stadium too, so he’s not mucking about – I think he [Rooney] is a fool,” he told talkSPORT.
