Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney admits growing up dreaming to be Liverpool forward Michael Owen.
While Rooney is a hero to fans of both the Everton and the Red Devils, it was Owen, who inspired him as a youngster.
As quoted on the Sky Sports website, Rooney said: “I went back to my old school a couple weeks ago and it was really nice to go back to see some of the teachers who still work there who used to teach me when I was at the school..
“To see all the children was a very good feeling and it was something I was very proud to do.
“But obviously when you’re playing football at school, I used to run about and pretend I was Michael Owen.”
