Wayne Rooney has held face-to-face talks with Ronald Koeman for the first time since he was charged with drink-driving.
Everton’s non-international players reconvened at their Finch Farm training base on Tuesday, having been given four days off by Koeman over the weekend. Rooney was arrested in the early hours of Friday morning, having been three times over the legal limit.
Rooney, who will appear before magistrates on September 18 to answer the charge, drove himself to Finch Farm and trained with the rest of Everton’s squad before seeing Koeman to explain the events that have left him in the centre of storm. He left around 2pm.
