Wayne Rooney is one of the most talented football players in the world. If you believe the hype.

The Manchester forward is so prolific a forward, that he is one of the most sought after players in the world hence his huge price tag. But what most people do not know is that at some point in his youth, he harboured the notion of becoming a pugilist.

I am sure his mother is glad he chose football because after watching the video of he and his friend sparring, I can already tell you he had naught a future in the sport!
What video am I referring to? Well, the striker was horsing around with one of his friends and got knocked out!

Enjoy. I know I did.



And just incase you did not understand his celebration when he scored against Totenham, this is what it was all about!
