Wayne Rooney has been warned about his future conduct following a remark the striker made to television cameras after Manchester United’s defeat by Chelsea, the Football Association said on Monday.

Rooney appeared to mouth “12 men” to the cameras following Premier League champions United’s 1-0 loss to leaders Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, a remark implying referee Martin Atkinson had been biased in favour of the Blues.

An FA spokesman said Monday: “Wayne Rooney has been warned as to his future conduct following remarks made yesterday (Sunday).”

Chelsea’s win left them five points clear of second-placed United.

I think quite the opposite, both Rooney and Fletcher were lucky not to be booked for their comments to the referee. I don’t think the referee was top drawer, but made bad calls against both teams.

When playing in a 4-5-1 formation, the striker is always frustrated by a loss, Rooney didn’t have a great game, or much support from midfield.
