Wayne Mark Rooney (born 24 October 1985 in Liverpool) is an English football player who plays for Manchester United and his country, England national team. He plays as a striker.

Everton

Rooney grew up in Liverpool, where there are two big football clubs; Liverpool and Everton. As a child, he supported Everton and began playing football for them at the age of only 15, when he became the youngest Premiership scorer, scoring a winning goal against Arsenal. Rooney started playing fantastic football for Everton and was the youngest scorer at Euro 2004, a competition where he played for England. Soon, other clubs wanted to buy him. Newcastle United and Manchester United both made offers to Everton for him. It was Manchester United who signed him eventually, for £23m in the summer of 2004. Rooney was only 18 at the time, and the £23m paid for him is the highest amount ever paid for a teenager in the world.

Personal

Rooney's wife is Coleen. They live in Cheshire. He has said one of his heroes was former footballer Duncan Ferguson. Rooney often appears in adverts for FIFA videogames and Coca-Cola.
