Manchester United and England legend, Wayne Rooney, has made complaints to Greater Manchester Police after photos of him with half-naked women went viral on social media.
DailyMail reports that the Derby County manager claimed he was 'set up' as he was captured getting close to a woman in a nightclub and asleep in a hotel room while two half-naked women took photos around him.
The 35-year-old father-of-four who is married to his childhood lover, Coolen, was captured with his arms around the waist of an unknown woman while out at a nightclub in Manchester.

The images were reportedly taken on Saturday night, on the first weekend that nightclubs in England were allowed to open in more than 15 months due to lockdown restrictions imposed during the pandemic. There is no suggestion of any wrongdoing on Rooney's part.
It is understood that Greater Manchester Police have launched an investigation after Rooney's lawyers made a complaint. Though his legal team would not confirm what complaint was made, it is understood that the former England star fears he has been 'set up'.
Rooney and Coleen have been together for nearly two decades since they started dating when they were 16 after leaving school, married in 2008 and have four sons together.
