A documentary about Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney was recently released, and in it he spoke about "that" incident with Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo at the 2006 FIFA World Cup.
In the documentary titled Rooney: The Man Behind The Goals, former England striker Gary Lineker interviews the Red Devils captain, touching on various moments of the forward's career.
One topic was the 2006 World Cup, when Rooney was sent off for England in the quarter-finals against Portugal. In the incident, Ronaldo appeared to persuade the referee to give his then United teammate a red card for a stamp on Ricardo Carvalho.
Lineker asked the Englishman whether what happened was really as dramatic as the public made it out to be, and the striker revealed that any issues that arose from the sending off were sorted out right after the clash.
"Not at all," he said.
"I spoke to him (Ronaldo) that day right after the game. And that was it.
"When the players came into the dressing room, I apologised to everyone.
"We put so much effort in. And getting the red card the way I did, it was so disappointing.
"It was a dark day for me."
It was rumoured that, after the World Cup, Rooney and Ronaldo's incident had carried over into the United dressing room, but the Portuguese superstar also insisted in an interview that things were sorted out quickly.
Rooney has played 490 times for the Red Devils, finding the back of the net 235 times.
