Man Utd star Rooney wants to meet tennis ace Roger Federer

Manchester United star Wayne Rooney has revealed he's a huge fan of tennis ace Roger Federer.

Rooney has revealed Federer is his hero because of the 16-time Grand Slam champion's control over his emotions.

The Manchester United striker, who received a two-match ban for swearing into a camera at West Ham in April, told talkSPORT: "I'd like to meet Federer.

"When he first started playing, he had anger issues. You look at him now on the court and how many titles he's won and it's incredible.

"The discipline he's had to (stop) the emotions running over is incredible."
