Rooney opens doors to his home

Macclesfield Express - - WILDLIFE -

PREST­BURY-RES­I­DENT Wayne Rooney is to welcome TV cam­eras into his home for a BBC doc­u­men­tary.

The Manch­ester United striker will fea­ture in a be­hind-the-scenes one-off spe­cial, pre­sented by Gary Lineker, called ‘Rooney – The Man Be­hind the Goals’ will be shown on BBC One at 9pm on Mon­day, Oc­to­ber 5.

Rooney be­came Eng­land’s all-time top goalscorer in Eng­land’s 2-0 win over Switzer­land and in do­ing so eclipsed Sir Bobby Charl­ton’s long-stand­ing record, with Lineker in third.

The star will join his fam­ily on screen for a tell-all look into his life in the spotlight, at home on Within­lee Road and at Old Traf­ford to cre­ate a per­sonal por­trait of the man be­hind the foot­baller.

The Eng­land and United cap­tain said: “I have been ap­proached many times about al­low­ing the cam­eras into our lives and al­ways said no. But now seems the right time. This film is not just about my goals, it’s about the peo­ple I care about the most, my team mates, the peo­ple clos­est to me but most im­por­tantly, my fam­ily.”

View­ers will get to see Rooney’s jour­ney from his hum­ble begin­nings in Liver­pool, to meet­ing and mar­ry­ing his wife Coleen to hav­ing his two sons Kai and Klay, with a third child on the way as he ap­proaches his 30th birth­day on Oc­to­ber 24.

Rooney will of­fer his thoughts on his ca­reer, home life and his fu­ture in football, while his par­ents, for­mer and cur­rent man­agers and other sig­nif­i­cant fig­ures such as Sven Go­ran Eriks­son, David Beck­ham, Zla­tan Ibrahi­movich, Steven Ger­rard, Frank Lam­pard, Ryan Giggs, Gary Neville, Louis van Gaal, Jamie Car­ragher, Roy Hodg­son, David Moyes and Sir Bobby Charl­ton will all fea­ture in in­ter­views.

Gary Lineker, added: “I think that our film will al­low the public to dis­cover the real Wayne Rooney.

“It’s been great spend­ing time with him and the whole Rooney fam­ily.

“Re­mem­ber also that Wayne is still only 29, he could push this record con­sid­er­ably higher yet.”
