Wayne was born in 1985 in Liverpool, England. Since early childhood he had been the local team, Everton, fan and at the age of 10 even started to play for it. In 2002 he got the opportunity to come on the field in the first team and showed good skill. During two seasons he successfully performed for Everton as a regular.
The turnaround in Rooney’s career came after the Euro 2004, where he proved to be a high-class and talented footballer. Wayne drew the attention of top English clubs. He was offered to stay with Everton and the club would raise player’s salary up to £50,000, but Rooney rejected the offer, because the team did not correspond to his potential. So the footballer transferred to Manchester United for about £25 million.
Rooney fired three goals in his debut match (the group stage of the Champions League) and became the youngest hat-trick scorer in the tournament history. After that the player gained Alex Ferguson’s confidence and started to regularly perform in the first team.
Wayne’s specific appearance bound him with a ‘Shrek’ nickname. During his entire career, Rooney shows a high level of skills, incredible pace and goalscoring flare. He has a whole clutch of personal and club honours. There was a time when Rooney fell into Ferguson’s disgrace and spent some time at the substitutes’ bench, but a footballer like him cannot stay out of action for a long time and he burst back in the first team with triumphantly again.
He is a regular centre striker of the England national team. In spite of Rooney’s tremendous skills, the Three Lions still cannot achieve impressive results, but Wayne is not to blame.
Besides playing football, Rooney takes an active part in trade business. He is the face of a number of sport companies and often appears in commercials. His picture was placed on the cover of FIFA, the best-selling football video game. One of the top English publishers ordered their writers a whole five-book series about Wayne Rooney’s life and fate. He was paid £5 million prepayment and a certain sum for the planned book sales.
