Wayne Rooney

Wayne Mark Rooney is an English footballer who plays as a striker for the English Premier League club Manchester United and the England national team.

He has won the Premier League three times, the 2007–08 UEFA Champions League and two League Cups. He has also been awarded the PFA Players' Player of the Year and the FWA Footballer of the Year in 2009–10.

Catholic Rooney wears a rosary round his neck when training. He also has a crucifix tattoo with his wife's name Coleen above it.

Rooney said, "I've been wearing them for years now and you don't usually watch training [to see them.] I obviously can't wear them in games."

Rooney has told reporters that he would probably have become a priest if he had not been a good footballer as he was said to have a particular aptitude for religious studies while in school.

He attended renowned Catholic institutions Our Lady and St Swithin's Roman Catholic Primary.
