Major League Soccer chiefs, who own Rooney's £10 million contract, fear he has tarnished the reputation of football in the US –  a sport which is growing in popularity.

Rooney is America's biggest soccer star and has behavioural clauses in his contract which mean he can be punished if he is deemed to have brought the game into disrepute.

The ex-England star, currently on a three-year deal at DC United, was held in Virginia last month after a booze and sleeping pill mix left him "disoriented".

He looked glum today as was seen walking through the US capital in a Moncler designer coat, baseball cap and Nike jogging bottoms.

Rooney hit the headlines after reportedly triggering a security door alarm at Dulles International Airport and then launching into a foul-mouthed tirade at staff.

One eyewitness, who saw the incident unfold at the airport, told The Sun: “He caused quite a scene.

“It seemed like he had come off his plane and gone through the gate marked ‘International Arrivals’, then wanted to go back for some reason.

“Obviously only security and airport staff are allowed.

“He was cursing – saying f*** off. He was not very happy at all. It was crazy.

“The whole incident lasted at least 30 minutes. A few people recognised him – they couldn’t believe it was Wayne Rooney.

“He is quite a regular face here as he flies in and out all the time.”
