WAYNE Rooney expects to find out today if he has Covid after unknowingly meeting an infected pal.
Josh Bardsley called on the ex-England captain the day before Rooney, 34, played for Derby against Watford.
Bardsley did not tell him he had been told by Test and Trace to take a Covid test, The Sun on Sunday told.
Rooney’s spokesman said: “Wayne is angry.
“He is disappointed that he, his family and club have been put in this position by someone acting secretly.”
Derby said “appropriate measures” had been taken to safeguard players and staff.
