Col’s hols ...but who’ll woo Roo?

Irish Sunday Mirror - - NEWS - kim.carr@trin­i­tymir­ BY KIM CARR

AS Wayne Rooney sweated over his foot­balling fu­ture, wife Coleen was feel­ing the heat too – on her fave Bar­ba­dos beach.

Coleen, 31, and their three sons Kai, seven, Klay, four, and oneyear-old Kit were hav­ing a ball at the Caribbean is­land’s exclusive Sandy Lane Ho­tel this week.

Kai yelped with de­light as he jumped from a boat em­bla­zoned with “Just Chillin” on the side .

Then he went wa­ter raft­ing with grandad Tony, watched by Coleen and his gran Co­lette.

Back at the fives­tar ho­tel, Coleen sipped cham­pagne while she re­laxed on a sun lounger and checked her mo­bile phone.

Af­ter Wayne, 31, joined them on Fri­day, de­lighted Coleen posted a fam­ily photo, tweet­ing: “Our Dad’s here!!! Let sum­mer time be­gin ...”

Two days ear­lier, Manch­ester United star Wayne played in the Europa League Fi­nal in Stock­holm, win­ning 2-0 against Ajax.

There is spec­u­la­tion this will be his last sea­son at Man Utd, with clubs in China and the US re­port­edly in­ter­est­ing in sign­ing him.

At least two Chi­nese teams are said to have of­fered Wayne €57mil­lion con­tracts, but it is thought that businesswoman Coleen would rather stay close to her par­ents Tony and Co­lette – although all that money could be handy for the hol­i­day fund.

Her Bar­ba­dos get­away comes just weeks af­ter Coleen took Kai to Spain to watch Real Madrid and Barcelona. She re­port­edly en­joyed more than 10 hol­i­days last year, but made do with nine in 2014. She has said: “I’m priv­i­leged that I’m able to go on hol­i­day, and if any­one else had the op­por­tu­nity they would go.

“You get peo­ple crit­i­cis­ing, but why are you in­ter­ested in me go­ing on hol­i­day?

“It’s some­thing I re­ally want to do and it has got noth­ing to do with any­one else.”

Coleen has also pre­vi­ously told the Mir­ror: “I’m lucky my work projects aren’t nine-to-five ev­ery day.

“A lot of the time I can work in the North with my chil­dren.

“I’ve got a strong fam­ily bond, where my mum will look af­ter the kids. My par­ents are mas­sive in­spi­ra­tions in my life.

“I re­spect them for the way they’ve brought me and my brothers up.

“That’s how I want my kids to feel about us when they get older, that we’ve done a good job rais­ing them and teach­ing them man­ners.’
