Wayne ‘Man. Utd-obviously-don’t-pay-me-enough’ Rooney has confirmed his appearance in a Gladiators-style contest just six days after the World Cup Final.
In a shameless publicity stunt, he will appear alongside such esteemed company as Cristiano Renaldo, Cesc Fabregas (if he hasn’t already run off to Barcelona), Steven Gerrard and Didier Drogba at London’s 02 Arena to decide who is the World’s most skilful footballer?
Evidently the spectacle of the World Cup is not enough to reinforce such notions so for a small fee (£500k!!) the performing monkeys players will turn up for one night’s ‘work’ and take part in five challenges testing power, precision, control, attack and curve….. whatever that means.
This glorified keepy-uppy competition will take part on July 17th and be shown live on ITV1 for our corneal delectation.
Be sure not to miss it.
