Roo-man­tic break in the sun


Manchester Evening News - - THE DIARY -

WAYNE and Coleen Rooney looked happy and re­laxed as they en­joyed a sun­shine hol­i­day to­gether.

The for­mer United foot­baller and his wife are mak­ing a new start in the UK after mov­ing back from the United States as Wayne pre­pares to be­come player-coach at Derby County. And the dot­ing par­ents, who have four young sons Kai, Klay, Kit and Cass, have been spend­ing some qual­ity time as a cou­ple be­fore he starts his new role in the new year.

“Gor­geous time away. Can’t wait to see my boys,” said Coleen as she shared hol­i­day snaps with her fans on her In­sta­gram from their stay at the lux­ury Man­darin Ori­en­tal Jumeira ho­tel in Dubai.

And fans were pleased to see them on such good form after a rocky time.

“Look­ing happy and re­laxed guys,” said one fol­lower.

“Lovely to see you two hav­ing a some qual­ity time to­gether,” said another.

This sum­mer, Wayne de­nied cheat­ing after pho­tos emerged of him in a ho­tel lobby in Canada with a mys­tery woman at 5.30am fol­low­ing a night out with his for­mer team-mates at Wash­ing­ton club DC United. The mar­ried fa­ther-of-four is­sued a state­ment to pro­claim his in­no­cence.

He hit back to say he did not en­ter a lift alone with the woman he was pic­tured with – and he said a woman he was pho­tographed with in a night­club was one of many fans who asked for au­to­graphs and pic­tures. Wayne, 34, tweeted: “Noth­ing hap­pened be­tween me and any girl on that night in Van­cou­ver. I did not en­ter the lift alone with the girl pic­tured in the ho­tel foyer. The girl pic­tured in the club was sim­ply one of many who in­no­cently asked for au­to­graphs and pic­tures.”

In the state­ment the foot­baller claimed he had been fol­lowed by a free­lance photograph­er with­out his knowl­edge or per­mis­sion.

Call­ing the claims ‘com­pletely un­true’ he added: “The whole story was a smear against me. It is dam­ag­ing to my fam­ily and not some­thing I am pre­pared to put up with.”

The for­mer Reds cap­tain left boy­hood club Ever­ton for Wash­ing­ton DC last sum­mer and took his fam­ily with him.

The Rooneys headed back to the UK after it was claimed that Coleen, 33, and their boys had been feel­ing ‘un­set­tled’ in the States.
