Terry will feature for England in the friendly against Egypt, his first game for the Three Lions following the Bridgegate affair.
Rooney said: “I hope they don’t boo John because I have played for England when some of our own players have been booed.
“It is not nice for the whole team, not just the player who’s been booed.”
Roo continued: “When the home fans boo the home players it doesn’t send the right message.
“Leading up to a World Cup you want the fans behind you and giving you their whole support. I think that will be really important so I hope he gets a good reception.
“Of course we are happy to have John around. He is a great player and, if we are going to win the World Cup, then we need John Terry. He is a big player for us.”
