Friends say Man Utd star Rooney wants to be stand-up comedian: But he's too shy!

Friends of Manchester United star Wayne Rooney say he has ambitions to become a stand-up comedian!

But he'll have to get over performing to a crowd if he wants to make it!

"Wayne's a regular at comedy nights in Liverpool and Manchester. He's always been a funny guy and has said before he'd love to be a comedian," one of Rooney's buddies told The Star. "We've all been going on at him so he's vowed to us and the rest of his friends that he will get up on stage next time he's out."

Rooney's friend added: "The only problem with Wayne getting up to tell a few jokes is his nerves.

"You wouldn't think it, but he does get nervous. He hates getting up to talk in front of crowds, let alone tell jokes.

"But he's got some good material - some of it pretty controversial."
