Fans are praying Derby County are drawn against Leicester City in the FA Cup so Jamie Vardy and Wayne Rooney can go head-to-head after the latest controversy between their wives.
Social media erupted on Wednesday afternoon after Coleen Rooney claimed information from her private Instagram account was being leaked to the tabloids by an account belonging to Rebekah Vardy.
Following an allegation by Rooney – who told her 1.2 million Twitter followers that she had spent five months attempting to work out who was sharing stories based on her personal social media posts and pointed the finger at Vardy’s Instagram account – Vardy said she ‘never’ speaks to journalists about her.
The reality TV star and wife of Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy wrote to Rooney: “If you thought this was happening you could have told me & I could have changed my passwords to see if it stopped.
“Over the years various people have had access to my insta & just this week I found I was following people I didn’t know and have never followed myself.”
The former I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here! star added: “I’m not being funny but I don’t need the money, what would I gain from selling stories on you?”
Vardy, who is pregnant with her fifth child, said she was ‘so upset’ Rooney made the accusation, adding: “I’m disgusted that I’m even having to deny this.
“You should have called me the first time this happened.”
Normally football fans dread the international break, with boredom usually setting in . However, the latest off-field controversy has fans praying Rooney, who will join Derby in January, is drawn to play against his former England teammate when the third round draw is made.

I’m sorry but if the FA aren’t busy rigging the third round proper so that Wayne Rooney’s first Derby appearance is against Leicester on a Friday night then what is the point in association football
