Thanks to the spouse of Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney, we have our latest edition of “when Twitter goes wrong.” Wayne Rooney hurt his hamstring during a training session Friday morning. Man U manager Sir Alex Ferguson didn’t want to divulge the information to the public, but a tweet from Rooney’s wife, Coleen, blew his cover.
According to The Guardian, Coleen tweeted Friday night that she was at home watching a Beyonce DVD with husband Wayne. That was an immediate sign that something was wrong because the rest of the team was at the hotel preparing for Saturday’s match with Stoke City.
Wayne Rooney missed the contest and the teams played to a 1-1 draw. Sir Alex Ferguson apparently has pointed out to Coleen that it would be best if she refrained from tweeting out revealing team information. She should have known better, but at least she knows now to be extra careful with it. And we do have to give her this — at least she was making better use of Twitter than her husband.
