George Evans Clearing Up Wayne Rooney Shirt Swap Shun Will Disappoint Manchester City Fans

George Evans Clearing Up Wayne Rooney Shirt Swap Shun Will Disappoint Manchester City Fans

George Evans didn’t knock back Wayne Rooney‘s shirt after Reading’s FA Cup defeat to Manchester United – he swapped it in the tunnel.

The former Manchester City youth delighted fans of his club when it appeared he had rejected Rooney’s offer to swap shirts at full-time.

BT Sport’s cameras picked it up and it’s since gone viral on social media, with City fans celebrating Evans’ decision to ignore a piece of history.

But the Reading man – who left the Etihad a year ago – has cleared up all the talk around it and taken to Twitter to share a picture of Rooney’s strip, which he grabbed in the tunnel rather than on the pitch after a bad result:

That’s surely going to disappoint City fans, who can be forgiven for thinking this was a fellow City supporter quite rightly knocking back a United strip.

But that’s not the case and you fully expect Evans to have the historic strip up on his wall before long.

Rooney scored in the 4-0 win for United to equal Sir Bobby Charlton’s all-time goalscoring record.
