Jamie Vardy blasts Wayne Rooney’s claim about meeting over Rebekah: ‘He must be confused’

Jamie Vardy has refuted Wayne Rooney's claims they met up to discuss Rebekah

Jamie Vardy has said Wayne Rooney “must be confused” as he denied the former England star’s claim he was asked to speak to the fellow footballer during the Euro 2016 about Rebekah Vardy, 40.

Wayne, 36, claimed that ex-England gaffer Roy Hodgson and assistant manager Gary Neville asked him to have a word with Jamie about his wife, with the aim to try and get Rebekah to behave better during the Wagatha Christie trial hearing.

He explained it was as a result of apparent “negative media coverage” surrounding the mum-of-five, along with other “issues” that were said to be “causing problems and distractions for the England team”.

Leicester player Jamie, 35, has refuted Wayne’s claims in courts, shortly after Rooney gave evidence.

Speaking outside the High Court in London today, according to The Sun, Jamie said in a statement: “”He must be confused because he never spoke to me about issues concerning Becky’s media work at Euro 2016.”

The star went on to say there had been “nothing to speak about”.

“I know this because I discuss everything with Becky,” he added.

OK! has contacted Wayne’s representatives for comment.

Giving evidence in court, Wayne said the players had sat down together for a chat in the games room, where the Derby County manager had a coffee and Jamie sipped on a can of Red Bull.

“They asked me, as captain, would I be able to speak to Mr Vardy on issues regarding his wife and I think we all knew that it was an awkward subject,” Wayne alleged. “I’d need to speak to Mr Vardy and ask him to speak to his wife and ask him to say to ask his wife to calm down.”

He added: “It was an awkward situation for me and I’m sure it was an awkward situation for Mr Vardy, but I felt it was in the best interests of the team.”

When asked to confirm if he was telling the truth about having the conversation with Jamie, Wayne insisted he was “under oath” and he “100 per cent spoke to Mr Vardy on the situation”.

“If he wants to relay that back to his wife that’s entirely his decision,” the Liverpudlian said.

Wayne also shared his support for his wife, admitting that while he didn’t want to “get involved” in the drama, it was difficult to watch his wife become “different” as a result of the “traumatic” saga.

“I’ve watched my wife over the past two, two and a half years, really struggle with everything that’s gone on… become a different mother, a different wife,” he shared.

“Hopefully whatever the judgment is… my wife, our children can go on and live our lives.

“This isn’t something we want to be part of,” the footballer added.
