ALTHOUGH he’s anything but timid on the pitch, according to reports the only thing holding Wayne Rooney back from a comedy career is shyness.
You may think that he’s the sort of person that thinks Jongleurs is Nigel de Jong’s nickname but you’d be wrong.
According to a friend of Rooney’s: “He’s always been a funny guy and has said before he’d love to be a comedian.
“The only problem with Wayne getting up to tell a few jokes is his nerves.
“You wouldn’t think it, but he does get nervous. He hates getting up to talk in front of crowds, let alone tell jokes.
“But he’s got some good material – some of it pretty controversial.”
