Wayne Rooney returns to Man Utd's Carrington training base… but here's real reason DC United boss is back in UK | The Sun

WAYNE ROONEY set tongues wagging when he turned up at Manchester United’s training HQ in a club tracksuit.

But the real reason for the Old Trafford legend’s flying visit was to watch his lads Kai, 12, and Klay, 9, training with United’s academy.


DC United boss Roo was back in the UK following the end of his club’s MLS season.

The former England international's American outfit finished bottom of the Eastern Conference with just seven wins from 34 matches – although Rooney did not take over until July.

But he is now enjoying the off-season as he watched his boys follow in his footsteps.

Older son Kai recently signed a deal to be a model for sportswear brand Puma.

He netted an impressive 56 times for the under-12s last season where he is team-mates with Cristiano Ronaldo’s son Cristiano Jr.

Speaking about Kai joining United, dad Rooney said: "He did have other options, other clubs to go to.

"But he decided he wants to sign for Manchester United, so it was his decision and not mine."

Rooney is United’s all-time top scorer with 253 goals in 559 appearances.
