Wayne Rooney really has no shortage of fans after his performances for England and Manchester United this season and we can see that by the success of his PFA Facebook page.
(PRWEB UK) 10 November 2013
Digital Sports Group today announce that the PFA Facebook page for England and Manchester United's Wayne Rooney has seen huge growth in term of 'likes' and fan interaction ahead of Manchester United's Premier League clash with Arsenal. The Facebook page along with the Wayne Rooney player profile on football.co.uk provide the only online location of the official PFA biography, lifetime stats, news and high resolution gallery.
Aged nine, Rooney joined the youth team of Everton, for whom he made his professional debut in 2002 at the age of 16. He spent two seasons at the Merseyside club, before moving to Manchester United for £25.6 million in the 2004 summer transfer window. The same year, Rooney acquired the nickname "Wazza." Since then, with Rooney in the team, United have won the Premier League five times, the 2007–08 UEFA Champions League, one FIFA Club World Cup and two League Cups.
He also holds two runner-up medals from the Champions League and has twice finished second in the Premier League. In September 2013, Rooney scored his 200th goal for United, making him the club's fourth-highest goalscorer of all time.
The Manchester United forward has scored 10 Premier League goals against the Gunners, and only Robbie Fowler has as good a record against the north Londoners. After a difficult start United have now gone eight matches unbeaten in all competitions after Tuesday night’s draw at Real Sociedad in the Champions League, and while Rooney has acknowledged Arsenal’s improved threat, he has challenged the league leaders to handle the pressure.
Head of Operations at DSG, Matthew Tait had this to say: “Wayne Rooney really has no shortage of fans after his performances for England and Manchester United this season and we can see that by the success of his PFA Facebook page.”
“All of us here at Digital Sports Group are proud we've had the opportunity to work with The PFA to give the fans a fantastic and unique fan resource for Wayne Rooney.”
DSG became the official digital partner of the Professional Footballers Association (PFA) earlier this year and have since launched a number of Player Profile fan pages on social media site Facebook as well as providing official player pages on their football news site football.co.uk.
