Wayne Rooney Update

In extracts in the Mirror from his book, My Decade in the Premier League by Wayne Rooney, discusses the summer of 2009: "Early July: the first day back at pre-season training. I'm like most blokes, I put on a few pounds after a holiday. Even if I don't train for a week, I put on two or three, but when I get back to Carrington for the first day of work, I'm in for a shock. The scales in the club gym tell me I've put on a few more pounds than expected – seven. Seven!

"Then I remember – I drank a few bevvies while I was away. I'm stocky. I'm not like Ryan Giggs, all bone and lean muscle. But I gain weight quite easily. It's not a problem though. It's not as if the manager is leaning over my shoulder as the numbers come in, tutting and making jokes about me eating too many chip butties. Besides, I know I can shift it in a week or two. All the players are given loose training programmes to stick to while they're away, but they're optional.

"The club like us not to go overboard on the eating and drinking in the close-season break, so if I go abroad I like to get into the hotel gym three times a week to work on the treadmill and do some weight work.

"That way I can be sharp when we get back to training and the running will feel easier when the pre-season games start. But coming back for pre-season after a few bevvies and a few weeks away from a ball is physically tough."


Roo has expressed his desire to get back in the action for United's upcoming Champions League clash tonight - and in The Red's fixture versus Liverpool on Sunday when Steven Gerrard and Nemanja Vidic will release 96 red balloons as Liverpool and Manchester United stand shoulder to shoulder to pay tribute to the victims of the Hillsborough disaster.

"Excited that the Champions League is back. I'll never forget my debut for Man Utd in the Champions League...", Rooney posted to his facebook page.

“It is the first chance we have had as a football club to pay tribute at Anfield for what everybody has done – the families, the fans and various other people like MP Andy Burnham,” said Liverpool managing director Ian Ayre.
