Rooney admits he’s still learning to learn how to control pent-up anger and reveals he ‘erupted’ in Derby dressing room – The Sun

WAYNE ROONEY admits he still sees the red mist… even at the age of 34.

The hothead Derby captain lines up against old club Manchester United in the FA Cup fifth round tonight.

And United’s record goalscorer Rooney — whose Old Trafford team-mates tried to curb his temper by making him count to five during a fiery moment — revealed he raged after a 3-2 defeat to Luton in January.

The Rams ace, who netted 253 times for United and 53 for his country, admitted: “I am still trying to learn how to control it now.
