Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney Can Read, Harry Potter

by | 3rd, February 2009

ANOTHER day, and yet another attempt to squeeze a cheap laugh out of Manchester United’s mighty Wayne Rooney.

The Star sports a picture of the England star wearing glasses and a cape. Have a guess why.

No, Rooney is not playing Superman in a fetish club. Rooney has revealed that his favourite book is Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.

Says Rooney:

“The Harry Potter books are favourites with a lot of children, and the same goes for a lot of adults. I’d encourage any child to read them, because they really get your imagination going.”

You can imagine the young Rooney going long on Famous Five books at the school library to make a full-height goal post outside his house.

The real shock is that with his celebrity high, Wayne’s was not been pricked to say his favourite book is Welcome to My World by Coleen McLoughlin…
