Wayne Rooney: young talent skillfully planting in the opponent's goal

March 5 2005

This boy is only 19 years, and many consider him the best player in the world. In England, Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has already eclipsed the former speaker of the club David Beckham. Now only write about it in glowing terms.

After the European Championships in Portugal, where Rooney   scored four goals and was the best player of his team in the world started this runomaniya. "England at the feet of King Rooney" - the title of the German newspaper Bild. Spanish AS named him Harry Potter, the British team. "Rooney - is the talent and inspiration," - says the French Le Monde. But steeper all made famous British tabloid The Sun: "Rooney - fat pig, but it is our fat cattle. And we're proud of it."

Indeed, Rooney looks more like a slaughterhouse worker, rather than the heir to Pele. Square head on a short, pumped his neck, a frown, thick-set figure. But at the same time on the field he can do everything.

Its distinguishing feature - a crazy focus on the goal. Rooney is difficult to stop even the most skilled and hard defenders: he is able at the right time to be in the right place and inflict a decisive blow. Rooney has great dribbling and speed. This guy sees the field well and is able to act not only in the end of attacks, but also in podygryshe. Rooney chalked up the most "youthful" goal of the Premier League - 5 days before the 17 th anniversary, he scored Arsenal's winning the series and broke the Gunners. True, this record Wayne soon lost - it took away my colleague James Milner, another young genius from Leeds. But Rooney has fully bounced back this year, becoming the youngest ever debutant and scorer of England.

Its only drawback - excessive fervor, because of which he now and then gets a yellow card. However, the very modest, and Rooney believes he has the mass of flaws in a football formation.

- I'm still young and many do not know how. In my game enough components on which to work and work. And what I quickly got into the main national team, I think upfront, which has yet to work out. "

After graduating from the European Championship round Rooney went Spin digits with eight zeros. Everton, which belonged to Rooney, offered for the young player a huge amount, including the owner of Chelsea's Roman Abramovich. But bosses at Everton were adamant.

David Moyes, chief chef at Everton, said:
- Wayne is worth 50 million pounds. But for the money we do not sell!

But then he had already balked Rooney. Not wanting to be trapped, and most of his career to take place in Everton, the club's famous, but recently the stars of the sky is not enough, Wayne refused to sign with him a new five-year contract in which the striker was supposed to 50,000 pounds a week. First, the guy asked the leadership team to provide it with financial guarantees that the contract will necessarily be executed. And as a result of all the turmoil - was composed of multiple champions of England Manchester United and the fans at Everton he called him a traitor.

Now, every encounter with his former crew turns to Rooney in the present trial. His name-calling, hang up posters with unpleasant words against him, and stands in it flying objects that could injure young talent. But Rooney all suffer.And he do?

Manchester - a great club, and the salary of a young football player in him at times greater than that which he received at Everton. This is important. Indeed, Rooney has grown into a needy family with many children, and now he needs to try that to ensure yourself and all family members.

Born in Wayne Kroksete, a suburb of Liverpool. Until last summer, the family Rooney was not my property - along with his parents and two brothers, the future famous footballer had lived in three-room house, which belonged to Liverpool. His mother, Janet worked as a cook at a local school, the father of his youth in boxing, but great progress is not achieved. Wayne, incidentally, at one time combined boxing to football, has not yet focused on the latter. In Rooney has two younger brothers. 15-year-old Graham is still involved in boxing and 12-year-old John walked in the footsteps of older and already listed on the note at Everton.

Rooney, many compared to Beckham , that's just the constant hero secular chronicles, like the last, it can hardly be shining. A year ago, Wayne, already a famous footballer in Britain, after training at Everton often went into the yard, to drive the ball with the local rebyatney. His girlfriend - not a supermodel, and an ordinary girl Colleen McLaughlin, who lives next door.

Wayne can not stand the secular crowd. Once his agent gave his ward a "surprise" - invited the girls from the trendy pop group Atomic Kittenz. So Rooney looked as if he had not celebrated his birthday, and was serving a heavy duty.

And the negative consequences of the popularity of Wayne familiar. Once someone stabbed tires in his car. On another occasion, a group of teenagers committing excesses attacked the house where he lives with his family. Walls, windows and a car were shot out of guns, spraying green paint. Not too sweet glory.
