Dec, 18th 2020 – Wayne Rooney’s son is following in his father’s footsteps by signing for Manchester United. Kai, who is 11, was pictured alongside his dad and mum Colleen putting pen to paper on a contract at the Old Trafford club. Kai was also pictured holding up a United shirt with the number 10 on the back, the same number his dad wore.
Wayne said, “Proud day. Kai signing for Manchester United. Keep up the hard work son.”
Currently, Rooney is the interim boss at Derby. He became United’s all time record goalscorer after spending 13 years at Old Tafford. He scored 253 goals in 559 games, winning one Champions League, one Europa League, five Premier League titles, one FA Cup and three League Cups.
The former England captain signed for United from boyhood club Everton in 2004 and left in 2017 when returning to Goodison Park for a season before moving to DC United.
