WAYNE ROONEY HAS been in the thick of the action away to Cardiff this afternoon.

With just seven minutes on the clock, a race for the ball between Rooney and Jordan Mutch saw the England striker kick out at his opponent.

Luckily for United, referee Neil Swarbrick only deemed the foul a yellow card offence.

On 14 minutes, Rooney then rubbed salt into Cardiff’s wounds by scoring the opening goal of the game.
