The former England and Manchester United star was spotted waiting patiently for his meal at Nando’s yesterday.
Wayne Rooney might be one of the wealthiest Brits around but even he had to wait like any regular customer at the Didsbury outlet of popular restaurant chain Nando’s.
The English legend was perhaps eager to get his hands on the flame-grilled PERi- PERi chicken, which has also attained legendary status among culinary enthusiasts and has been a best seller since it’s introduction.
Wazza’s fabled return to boyhood club Everton has not exactly gone according to script with Ronald Koeman given the axe and the club struggling in the league.
The humbling experience at Nando’s comes at a time when the attacker is enduring a poor stint of form and has been unable to replicate Lukaku’s goal scoring feats in Everton blue so far.
Everton fans will be hoping Rooney can match his appetite for grilled chicken with his appetite for goals in coming games.

In a sport that is often associated with intense rivalries, both on and off the field, football also provides heart warming displays of friendship between the players on many occasions.
One such event occurred recently after the friendly game between England and Brazil last night, as former Tottenham players Kyle Walker and Paulinho shared a friendly embrace after the match.
Walker played for Tottenham between 2009 and 2017 as their defender, while Paulinho was their midfielder between 2013 and 2015, during which they must have shared not only the dressing room, but also many a laugh; a kinship that has still not been forgotten obviously.
Manchester United star Anthony Martial was back to his best, taking lives again during the 2-2 draw between Germany and France last night.
The former Monaco winger showed delightful footwork as he went past a Germany defender effortlessly before squaring the ball to Arsenal new boy Alexandre Lacazette, who tapped it in to score the 1st goal of the match.
Great piece of dribbling but Martial would need to show such confidence regularly to cement his spot in Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United, who take on Newcastle United on Saturday.
Toto definitely sold the dream to Niklas Süle last night, check out the breathtaking skills from Martial below –
Another top performance from Joe Gomez during England’s goalless draw against Brazil last night at Wembley. The Liverpool man has been very impressive for England in the last 2 games against two of the best teams in international football.
One just can’t help but get excited for his future, especially if you consider his age and the calibre of player he was up against. Liverpool fans would be hoping that he goes on to become a starting center-back for them in the future.
A composed performance from Joe Gomez, who didn’t look phased by the pressure at all; something which bodes really well for the future and gives Reds boss Jurgen Klopp plenty to think about.
Having assembled a team of world beaters on the pitch, Tottenham seem to be doing just the same off the pitch as the club unveiled their two new additions to their star collection of international chefs that will be offering their cuisine on the On Four-premium suites and lounges that will be catering a wide variety of signature dishes to the fans on matchdays.
Announcing the addition of new chefs Bryn Williams and Dipna Anand, Tottenham also released new CGI images of the premium sites that will be open to the guests when the stadium opens next year.
And judging by the images, the proposed On Four currently under construction surely looks surreal and astounding comparable to the very best in the world.
Amid rumours of Arsenal buying out their contract with Puma with a prospective move to Adidas being mooted online, the fans were treated to a stunning new concept kit from Italian graphic designer Vincenzo Lagrutta Carrino.
Based on Puma’s new evoKNIT template, the design combines Arsenal’s traditional red and white colors with navy applications.
Arsenal fans will be hopeful that the club continues their association with Puma and will be eager for a chance to grab the smartly designed kit off shelves before the start of next season.
Released online by the usually reliable Footy Headlines, check out the fabulous design here :
With the likes of Gerard Butler, Rod Stewart and Conor McGregor among the many, Scottish Champions Celtic certainly boast a long list of high profile fans throughout the world.
Monday night saw yet another celebrity in the form of musician Jake Bugg join that distinguished list of Celtic’s star supporters.
The singer-songwriter was spotted with the man of the moment Kieran Tierney before his concert at Edinburgh. The duo were spotted posing for pictures backstage and Tierney was snapped presenting a signed Celtic jersey to the indie rock star.
Tierney later took to Twitter to share the pictures of their meeting while also thanking Bugg for the hospitality rendered to him. Check out the pictures below –
Joe Cole has a new account on Instagram, which may not seem like big news, but the fact that he mentions his former clubs West Ham and Chelsea, and NOT Liverpool, is certainly fodder for thought.
Cole started out as a promising youth prospect at West Ham United in 1999, before Chelsea snapped him up in 2003, where for the next seven years he would become the mainstay of the side’s midfield, simultaneously winning numerous caps with the English national team as well.
However this successful run would come to an end at the turn of the decade, as Cole transferred to Liverpool. He had a torrid year, and was soon loaned out to French side Lille OSC, where he enjoyed a brief rejuvenation in his fortunes.
His return to Liverpool was not satisfactory, and in 2013, he moved back to West Ham. Cole described this stint at Liverpool as a “mistake” because of a failure to ‘connect’ with the fans; a feeling he still holds apparently, as evidenced by his Instagram account.
Check out a screenshot of the bio on Joe Cole’s new Instagram account below –
Celtic and Swedish defender Mikael Lustig was in the news recently, not only for playing a role in ousting four-time World Cup winners Italy from the qualifiers, but also for his expletive laden emotional outburst at Italian spectators during the second leg of the qualifiers at the San Siro in Milan last night.
Broadcast cameras picked up Lustig’s colourful comments after the Swedish anthem had just concluded, throughout which throngs of hardcore Italian fans were booing constantly.
Rather than facing flak, however, the 30-year old stalwart found supporters and sympathizers internationally.
His numerous exploits with Scottish giants Celtic, particularly his rabona move earlier this year against St. Johsntone, have already garnered him a legion of fans.
But his most recent performance with his mouth, rather than his feet, have endeared him more to his fans for his unflinching attitude and finding the right riposte to bullying.
Check out the incident below and for anyone wondering big Mika yelled “Jävla fittor är’om” which roughly translates to “what f**king c***ts” –
