Photo: An update on Man Utd striker Wayne Rooney’s massive gash

After Wayne Rooney shared a photo of his nasty head injury last week, he appears to have jetted off to Portugal during the international break while the wound heals.

Fan Sam Saunt bumped into him in the Algarve at the weekend and Rooney posed for a photo. On the basis of the photo, it looks like the Manchester United striker is going to have a nasty scar down his forehead from now on, Harry Potter style.

Sam has also defended Rooney from suggestions that perhaps Rooney should be in Ukraine with England this evening.

He wrote: “I’m the one in the photo with him and that photo doesn’t tell you how bad/deep/messy it looks!”
