Wayne Rooney’s greatest ever tweets – from Rio request to Whitney Houston tribute

Wayne Rooney is known for his brilliance as a Manchester United player, crucial goals when representing England and… hilariously awful tweets.

The striker joined the Red Devils in 2004 and spent 13 years at Old Trafford making himself a United legend.

Rooney won the Premier League five times as well as the Champions League once, becoming the first United player ever to score 250 goals for the club.

However, for all his great goals and Man of the Match performances, the Derby County manager never really got the hang of social media, namely Twitter.

Here are some of Rooney’s funniest ever tweets, all of which still have not been deleted…

Rooney is Manchester United’s all-time record goalscorer

I wanna run to you

We kick off with this absolute classic. Rooney reveals how devastated he is to hear about the passing of Whitney Houston, which is, of course, a normal thing to tweet. But was there any need for lyrics in the heartfelt message?

Arguing with… himself

Here we see Rooney in a war of words with himself. The England international clearly hadn’t been shown how to reply to a tweet so instead, he tagged himself in a tweet intended for a keyboard warrior so it read that he was going to physically brawl himself.

Mr Bean

In a short but sweet tweet, the former Everton player revealed his love for Rowan Atkinson’s TV character, Mr Bean.

Celebrity Juice

Which Rooney tweet is your favourite? Comment below.

Another very simple tweet from Rooney, again, using the template of tweet, comment.

Unpopular Piers

Rooney is known for his feuds and hot-headedness, and one man that drives him up the wall is Piers Morgan. In a hilariously PG tweet, he called the TV personality host an egg.

Another PG insult

Carl Foster, whoever he is, is another person that has got on the bad side of Rooney. The potential troll may have needed a few more hours per week spent in the gym, so England’s all-time top scorer let him know.

Hair transplant

Presumably, when this tweet was published when the media was full of rumours that Rooney had had a hair transplant. He confirmed that he had undergone the surgery and was pleased with his newfound barnet.


Footballer and chauffeur? Maybe. This tweet is one of Rooney’s most iconic lines as he accidentally offers teammate Rio Ferdinand a lift via Twitter rather than text.

Diving Didier

Both Rooney and Didier Drogba are seen as two of the best strikers in Premier League history, however, the former isn’t too fond of how easily the former Chelsea star used to fall to the ground to draw a foul.

More random insults

Phil Neville may not be the most entertaining of people, but Rooney didn’t have to call him out like this, without context.
