Rooney was unaware of the incident as the schoolboy United fan was taken to hospital where doctors plastered his arm.

Rooney Tweeted: “If i broke this kids wrist in warm up i apologise. If the kids parents get in touch with club i will gladly sign a shirt for him.”

He later added: "I want to apologise to Jamie Thomas, I have arranged for a letter and a signed shirt to be sent to his home address #getwellsoon"
