HOME B ROO Drink-drive charge Wayne’s pub paradise
WAYNE Rooney will be within striking distance of a tipple when he moves into his new home – close to a posh wine merchant and six pubs.
The footballer, who is due in court tomorrow charged with drink-driving, has promised wife Coleen he will curb his nights out.

A source said his move was inspired by his admiration for the 1987 film classic Full Metal Jacket which features tough drill instructor Sgt Hartman.
Koeman, 54, told the Blues’ players they would be fined if he heard about them
partying with girls and drinking in clubs. The source said: “Ron was fuming with Rooney and gave him a proper dressing down.
“He decided the best way to stop what he feels is the ‘rot’ spreading to the rest of the team is to punish the whole squad.”
