Wayne Rooney Threatens Fan On Twitter

Wayne Rooney doesn't respond well to Twitter abuse.

A fan threatened the Manchester United striker on Tuesday night saying: "Rooney ya fat whore ill smash ya head in with a pitchin wedge an bury ya with a ballast fork ya fat ugly lil nonse."

Rooney responded with a threat of his own and challenged the fan to a fight.

"I will put u asleep within 10 seconds hope u turn up if u don't gonna tell everyone ur scared u little nit. I'll be waiting," Rooney said.

He then brushed off the altercation and called it a "bit of banter."
