The Wayne Rooney Official PFA Profile
(PRWEB UK) 21 August 2012
Digital Sports Group are today launching the PFA Profile of Manchester United striker 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. It was today the turn of Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney to see his official PFA Profile.
Rooney dramatically burst on to the scene as a 16 year old, coming off the bench for Everton to score a last minute winner against Arsenal. Since then Rooney hasn’t looked back and has gone on to achieve great success with both Manchester United and on an individual level. During his time at United Rooney has won the Premier League four times, the 2007-08 UEFA Champions League and two League cups. He also holds two runners up medals from the Champions League and has twice finished second in the Premier League. Rooney has also received several individual awards during his time in Manchester. In April 2012 Rooney scored his 180th goal, making him United’s fourth highest goal-scorer of all time. In 2009-10, Rooney was awarded the PFA Player of the Year and the FWA Footballer of the Year. Rooney has also won the ‘Goal of the Season’ award by the BBC’s Match of the Day poll on three occasions, with his bicycle kick against rivals Manchester City winning the ‘Premier League Goal of the 20 Seasons’ award. Rooney is the third highest-paid footballer in the world after Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo with an annual income of £18m including sponsorship deals.
Head of Operations at DSG, Matthew Tait had this to say “Rooney will have no shortage of fans on Facebook, he is arguably the most talented player of his generation and will be hugely important for Manchester United this season.”
“Of course a player with Rooney’s talent requires a certain level of respect and responsibility and he is sure to be a major hit with fans on Facebook.”
