Published Add your comment

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney warned a Twitter follower "I'll put u asleep within 10 seconds" as he became involved in an online altercation.

The England international came in for late-night abuse from the follower who taunted him: "Rooney ya fat w***e ill smash ya head in with a pitchin wedge an bury ya with a ballast fork ya fat ugly lil n***e."

Rooney dared the follower to meet him at United's training ground to carry out his threat, and replied: "I will put u asleep within 10 seconds hope u turn up if u don't gonna tell everyone ur scared u little nit. I'll be waiting."

The 25-year-old United frontman then looked to defuse the situation by tweeting: "Haha bit of banter and people go nuts chill all people."

The Twitter account belonging to the follower who taunted Rooney has since been deleted.
