LONDON, Nov. 25 (Xinhua) -- Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney has become the latest big name in English football to urge victims of a sexual abuse scandal rocking football to come forward and report what happened to them.

Rooney spoke publicly in his role as an ambassador for the national children's charity, the NSPCC, following a string of allegations of sexual abuse made by retired players, dating back to when they were children.

Rooney, also the England captain, said: "It's awful that some of my colleagues have suffered this way while playing the sport that I and they love.
