The English Football Association leader says Wayne Rooney hasn’t “set a great tone” as England captain over late-night revelry at the team hotel.

FA chief executive Martin Glenn’s highly-unusual public rebuke of an England player comes after Rooney apologized after the pictures of him were taken Saturday night and published in British newspapers.

Although the bleary-eyed Rooney was off-duty at the time, the FA is unhappy with the conduct of the team’s figurehead.

Glenn says “obviously it’s disappointing. I think it’s appropriate that he apologized because it doesn’t set a great tone for the England captain.”
