‘A few of the young lads were horrified!’: Wayne Rooney candidly talks about the ‘size of his manhood’ during bizarre team talk to DC United players
The DC United boss, 37, left the young lads ‘horrified’ after telling them about his ‘tiny penis’.
Wayne, who stays in the United States capital without wife Coleen, was trying to boost the teams morale after a string of bad results when he made the extremely personal comments.
‘A few of the young lads were horrified!’: Wayne Rooney has candidly spoken about ‘the size of his manhood’ during a bizarre team talk to DC United players
A source told The Sun: ‘It was very funny and he hoped using personal references would make it look like the speech was from the heart.
‘But the majority of his side were left bemused and struggled to understand what his sex life and size of his manhood had anything to do with what happens on the pitch.
‘A few of the young lads were horrified. They don’t share the same British sense of humour.’

The England legend, who played for the club in 2018 and 2019, scoring 25 goals in 52 matches, was unveiled as head coach in July 2022.
The footballer, who jetted off to America to sign the $1million contract, also persuaded bosses to let him go back home if a Premier League job arises – in order to be back with his family.
Rooney travelled alone, without wife Coleen who struggled to settle in Washington when he was a player there.
It emerged during the Wagatha Christie feud earlier this year that she described the city as ‘not the best’ and ‘quite behind the UK’ in texts to Rebekah Vardy back in 2018.
‘Nice to visit but different to live (in),’ was her verdict on America’s historic cradle of democracy.
Back when he played for the club Coleen and their four – Kai, 12, Klay, nine, Kit, six, and four-year-old Cass – went with him, but this time they are staying in the UK.
The family currently reside in their £20 million purpose-built mansion in Cheshire.

But for Wayne this is a good chance for a reset in his fledgling coaching career after the many stresses and strains of the Derby job.
After announcing his return to Washington, Wayne said: ‘When my agent called me and said DC had come in, I spoke to my wife first and she said this is an opportunity to go back as coach and I am ready for that.
‘Had she said, ‘I don’t want you to go there’, that would have been different. I am in a different place as a human being than I was four years ago when I was in Washington and I am ready.
‘Of course any major decisions I make are with my wife. My family, for the time being, will stay in England and come and visit. It’s not an issue from a family point of view.’
A source told The Mirror: ‘His contract lets him speak to Premier League clubs if there’s a job going. I think he’ll only return if it’s a big club, but being home with Coleen and the boys would be a big factor for him.’
