The highly anticipated Amazon original documentary ROONEY, starring Wayne Rooney, has been given a release date. The former Man United and England striker has always been scrutinised by the media, both on and off the pitch, but this new documentary aims to tell the narrative of Rooney’s life and career in his own words and the testimony of those who knew him best. On February 11th, 2022, ROONEY will be available on Prime Video Sport. ROONEY will be exclusively accessible on Amazon Prime Video and will require a membership to watch.
Wayne and Colleen Rooney, Rooney’s father and other close family members will provide personal testimonials, as well as contributions from David Beckham, Rio Ferdinand, Gary Neville, and Thierry Henry. David Moyes and Sven Goran Eriksson, Rooney’s former managers, will both speak on England’s all-time leading goal scorer.
The documentary will provide viewers unprecedented access into the man’s life and profession, recounting some of the most pivotal occasions in his life and work. It will provide a glimpse into the former footballer’s formative years in Liverpool, as well as his teenage years when he exploded as a world football sensation while facing tremendous press scrutiny. The documentary will examine the former Manchester United forward’s career as it follows him through some of his most memorable and tough times.
