Eddie Hearn, head of Matchroom Sport, has revealed that Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney sends him text messages from time to time when he’s drunk asking him to play a match.

In an interview with former Manchester United player Peter Crouch, the latter asked Hearn if any footballer had the opportunity to compete in boxing, and Hearn replied: “Ronnie knows how to fight, I spoke to Wayne, when he drinks alcohol, he sends me message and tells me he wants to fight and is excited to face one or the other.”

He continued, “Sometimes I get a message from Wayne that says, ‘Make me against so-and-so and I want to take part in this fight.’

He added: “I go through his messages in the morning and I tell him it’s going to be a big event and I ask him if he’s serious and he doesn’t answer.”

And he concluded: “Where can you fight?”

It is noteworthy that Rooney, the former captain of the England national team, appeared on the BoxNation program and said that he grew up as a keen boxer, but eventually decided to pursue a career in football.

Rooney played for the Red Devils for 13 years, during which he scored 183 goals and won five Premier League titles and, in 2008, the club’s third Champions League title.

Nicknamed the “Golden Boy”, Rooney played 119 international matches for his country, scoring 53 goals, and was named the historical top scorer of the Three Lions.
