Rooney gets emergency Covid-19 test, the Derby captain has been left ‘angry’ after Josh Bardsley, 27,
entered his multi-million-pound mansion to deliver him a luxury watch last Thursday despite being
contacted by Test and Trace in the days prior – and he has
since tested positive for Covid-19 sparking concerns Rooney could have been infected.
The unaware former England star had played for Derby in Friday night’s defeat.
Rooney, 34, said his health, as well as his family’s and team-mates, had been jeopardized by someone acting
against government guidelines.
Bardsley had delivered a luxury watch to Rooney at his mansion on Thursday.
However, he had already been contacted by Test and Trace and so should have been self-isolating. He had also taken a test, which later came back positive.
Married dad-of-four Rooney was unaware and played in Derby’s 1-0 defeat at home to Watford the following evening.
