Rooney â who is only 25 â has seen his hairline recede quicker than Michael Owenâs international career. And the hot-tempered striker struggled to keep his shiny head in check when Owen, 31, poked fun at the profile picture on Rooneyâs Twitter page.
In a tweet which could be read by Rooneyâs 440,000 followers, Owen said: âBy the way, how old are you in that photo? Your face looks like a 12-year-oldâs but your hair looks like a 60-year-oldâs!â
Rooney replied: âeasy mo u know thatâs a sensitive subject.â
Injury-prone Owen, who may have troublesome hamstrings but at least has a full head of hair, said: âWonât mention it again in public then!!!â
Rooney replied: âGood lad.â
