Rooney has dropped the ball on the field which has lead him into his new job as ball boy. Which isn't doing too well.

Crap, I need to make sure all the balls are returned, otherwise Mourinho will dock my pay, plus keep me on the bench.

Confused by the speculation, Rooney empties the Manchester United ball bag and readies himself to climb inside it, desperate to prove he’s “still a perfect fit for the team”

The more balls I have, the greater the chance that one may sneak in.  Besides, I got them from LFC and they score goals there.

The boss recommended that I should autograph the soccer balls I use in training. That way, when I inevitably shank a kick, a lucky fan will be able to take the ball home.

 

I told him that would not be business savvy. If I left the balls unmarked, the fans can at least fetch a better price on eBay by selling it as 'Like New' rather than 'Cosmetically Damaged'.
