Man Utd's Rooney becoming fine wine connoisseur

Manchester United star Wayne Rooney is becoming a connoisseur of fine wines - thanks to the influence of manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

The 22-year-old England star has listed Sauvingnon blanc as his favourite drink and has been building up his own cellar.

A source at the club told the Daily Mail: "A posh glass of wine with his dinner really does it for him.

"He'll be the first to admit he knows very little about wine but Fergie is showing him the ropes and recommending classy bottles of plonk.

"But he winds Wayne up about not knowing the difference between a bottle of wine and a bottle of vinegar."

Sir Alex has collected fine burgundies and clarets for years and traded expensive bottles with former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho.
