England boss Hodgson has no concerns over Rooney temperament

Roy Hodgson has rejected suggestions that Wayne Rooney’s temper could cause a problem for England as the Three Lions prepare to face Montenegro in a World Cup qualification match, the same country Rooney was sent off against in a Euro 2012 qualifier, Sky Sports has reported.


Wayne Rooney is sent off against Montenegro


It was Rooney’s second red card of his England career - the first coming against Portugal in the 2006 World Cup - and meant he missed the opening two matches of Euro 2012 against France and Sweden, with Sky Sports claiming Rooney was left unfit for the remaining matches of England’s participation in the tournament.


The Manchester United striker was shown a straight red for kicking out at Miodrag Dzudovic in the 2-2 draw in Podgorica, the same venue for the latest meeting between the sides on March 26. England had led the match 2-0.


Hodgson revealed that he intended to speak to all of his players about the need to keep a cool head, but would not speak to Rooney individually. He said: “I don't think I will speak to Wayne personally on the matter because he is more than aware (of what happened). When you have been sent off in a game, you don't forget your sendings off.


His disciplinary record actually, ignoring that occasion which he paid dearly for, has been very good,” Hodgson added.


I will be speaking to all the players. Away matches at this level of football require a lot of discipline, not only tactical discipline but also mental. But I won't be singling out Wayne for that. He has not let me down as a player so I have no reason to doubt him.
