Courtesy of an upcoming BBC documentary on the life of Wayne Rooney, we know that the former Everton striker has a love for poetry and enjoys writing poems and short stories.

Manchester United’s summer recruit and World Cup winning midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger was quizzed about club captain Wayne Rooney’s love for poetry, but the former Bayern Munich player refused to divulge any dressing room secrets. However, Schweinsteiger did reveal that he sometimes does not understand what Rooney speaks in his ‘Scouser accent’.
