Wayne Rooney was dropped from a match and fined 200, 000 pounds after he talked about a night out he had with his wife Coleen.
Rooney and Coleen had gone out to dinner, along with Man U players Darron Gibson and Jonny Evans and their respective partners, on Boxing Day.
The next morning, when the teammates were talking about how good a time they had, they were immediately ordered by Sir Alex Ferguson to do extra training on their day off.
On the night before the match with Blackburn Rovers, Rooney was told that he would be dropped for the match, a major shock given the club's current injury crisis.
All three players were also fined a week's wages each, which means 200, 000 pounds for Rooney.
Insiders say the temperamental star feels his six-figure fine is massively unfair and is said to be angry at Ferguson's 'complete over-reaction'.
"Wayne is bemused and upset. It seems to him like a major injustice," the Mirror quoted a source as saying.
The star has previously had fallings out with his boss - and almost quit United in 2010.
