Zitat des Tages von Wayne Rooney:
I'm proud I'm English and I'm passionate about my country.
Everyone who watches me play knows I am an honest player.
Just to confirm to all my followers I have had a hair transplant. I was going bald at 25 why not.
I just hate losing and that gives you an extra determination to work harder.
I play the game as honestly as I can. If the referee gives a penalty there is nothing you can do.
Becoming a dad was the proudest moment of my life. Playing football does not even compare.
I've trained all my life. I've always been one who enjoys training so it's not something that I think I can just stop doing. It might not be as regular but I want to keep training.
I am as passionate about the England team as anyone.
Early on in my career I had a lot of bad press about my temperament, but I was only a young lad then.
If I'm staying in a hotel or I'm sleeping on my own I have the hairdryer on.
I've started doing my coaching badges, I'd like to be a manager one day.
I'll keep doing my training and I'm sure the goals will come.
Football is made up of all kinds of conflict. In a dressing room, between players, between us and the manager, between us and loads of people who don't seem to matter. It's constant and harsh sometimes.
If you're not scoring the frustrations build up.
I'm just a normal young lad who plays football.
Becoming a dad means you have to be a role model for your son and be someone he can look up to.
You're trying to put yourself in that moment and trying to prepare yourself, to have a 'memory before the game. I don't know if you'd call it visualising or dreaming, but I've always done it, my whole life.
I don't think I look up to any players. Obviously you respect everyone.
When you are 16 there is no fear whatsoever. As you get older you play in more important games and that is when you start thinking about what will happen if you win or lose.
I'm only a human being.
Growing up, watching the Premier League as far back as I can remember, feeling the trophy and having the medal around my neck was an unbelievable feeling.
Football's about the young players, bringing youth team players through to the first team and hopefully getting the best out of them so they can go on to play for their country.
I train as hard as I can every time I train and I do extra training every day and I've done that since I was a young boy.
The lifestyle I lead as a footballer means I am always in the spotlight.
I might have faults but I'm not a big head.
As you get older you play in more important games and that is when you start thinking about what will happen if you win or lose.
I want to score in every game and win things. That's the most important thing.
Diving has been in the game for years. Probably the coverage the game gets now, with all the cameras around, it gets highlighted a bit more. But it hasn't got any worse.
When I was about 16, I got my ball taken off me by the police for playing in the street - which is pathetic really.
I love football, football is my life.
Some players don't like training and I've seen some players who aren't bothered if they play or not. But I want to play every game. Sometimes you have to rest in certain games, but I want to play in every game.
If you look at my bookings, they've gone down each season. That's something I'm trying to keep improving. On the pitch you don't want any silly bookings.
I'm not really that bothered by appearance. I know a few players who go off doing stuff in the mirror ages before they go out to play a game, but I'm not really interested in that.
There's a lot more pressure on me at United. There are people out there trying to shoot you down.
Unlike others who have been caught swearing on camera, I apologised immediately. And yet I am the only person banned for swearing. That doesn't seem right.
If you don't score, and you have chances, you are disappointed.
