Forward for Manchester United and England’s national team, Sports Speaker Wayne Rooney is one of the greatest English footballers of all time.  Rooney got an early start in the professional ranks.  He began playing with the youth team for Everton at the age of nine, and made his professional debut in 2002 at the young age of 16.  Two years later, he made the move to Manchester United, one of the most successful football clubs in the Premier League.  Since the arrival of Rooney, the prestigious Manchester team has won the Premier League a total of five times, the UEFA Champions League once, the FIFA Club World Cup once, and the League Cup twice. On top of all the championship titles, individually Rooney has scored over 200 goals, making him the third-highest goal scorer for Manchester United of all time.  As if the impressive club career wasn’t enough, Rooney has had a just as successful international career playing for England. Not only was he the youngest player to represent England at the age of 17, but he was also the youngest goal scorer in the history of the English national team. The extraordinary football talent has played in the 2006 and 2010 world cups, and has won the England Player of the Year award twice.  His other accolades include winning the PFA Players’ Player of the Year, FWA Footballer of the Year and the Premier League Player of the Month, which he has won a record setting five times, a feat that has only been accomplished by one other football superstar, Steven Gerrard.

Rooney has numerous endorsement deals with some of the biggest brands in the world including, Nike, Nokia, Ford, and Asda.

So far the footballer has released three: My Story So Far, The Official Wayne Rooney Annual, and My Decade in the Premier League.  Additionally, Wayne has brought in millions of dollars of revenue for his club Manchester United, as his jersey has been the best-selling sports product in the premier league with an estimated 1.2 to 1.5 million sold in one season.
