Wayne Rooney has reportedly been forced to take an emergency coronavirus test amid fears he could have caught the virus from an infected friend who visited his home last week. 

According to The Sun, the Derby captain has been left ‘angry’ after Josh Bardsley, 27, entered his multi-million-pound mansion to deliver him a luxury watch last Thursday despite being contacted by Test and Trace  in the days prior – and he has since tested positive for Covid-19 sparking concerns Rooney could have been infected.

The unaware former England star had played for Derby in Friday night’s defeat.

In a statement to the Sun, Rooney, 34, said his health, as well as his family’s and team-mates, had been jeopardised by someone acting against government guidelines.

 A spokesman said: ‘Wayne met Josh Bardsley briefly when he visited Wayne’s house on Thursday.

‘Wayne was not told by Josh or anyone else before or during that visit that Josh had been told to take a coronavirus test.

‘Had he known Josh had been contacted by Track and Trace or had tested positive he would have refused to have seen him.

‘Wayne is angry and disappointed that he, his family and his club have been put in this position by someone acting secretly and in breach of government and NHS guidelines. He is now taking a coronavirus test as a result of his contact with Josh.’
