Wayne Rooney is an English footballer who plays as a striker for both Premier League club Manchester United and the England national team. The incredibly talented and diligent player is also well-known for his ill-tempered behaviors and spitting dirty words on the pitch. Rooney signed with Manchester United in 2004, and since then, he has led the team to Premier League victory four times.

Rooney was awarded the FIFA Club World Cup Golden Ball in 2008, the prize for England Player of the Year in 2008 and 2009, the award for PFA Players' Player of the Year in 2010, and the honor of FWA Footballer of the Year in 2010.

His major sponsors included Nike and Electronic Arts. In 2010, the soft drink giant Coca-Cola axed the star's £600,000-a-year deal in the spate of allegations about his chaotic private life.
