Wayne Rooney – Top Soccer Player Has Hair Transplant
World renowned soccer player Wayne Rooney, currently with Manchester United F.C. and a leading part of the English National Team, is watched and scrutinized weekly for his soccer performances on the field. Unbeknownst to the world, Rooney has been dealing with some off-the-field issues. Issues that many common working men have dealt with on a regular basis. Rooney, at the ripe ole age of 25, has been going bald.
This private issue becomes a very public issue when you are dealing with a celebrity of Rooney's status. A man/boy who is the leading hope and attacking prowess for the English National Team for the past few years, Rooney is idolized and immolated by young and old around the globe. A seemingly private Cosmetic Surgery procedure (Hair Transplant) for the common person has now become world-wide press and intrigue by everyone and anyone who reads about soccer.
After photos leaked of Rooney leaving a Queen Anne Street Medical Centre in central London wearing a cap and hood, speculations ran amuck. Rooney then decided to share his personal issue by posting a photo on Twitter of his newly transplanted hair line. He said on his Twitter page,
"Hi all, there’s my head. It will take a few months to grow. Still a bit bloody too but that’s all normal.”
Wayne Rooney took the high road regarding his cosmetic surgery procedure. Certainly it wasn't an easy decision to post his “private matters” on his Twitter page; however, he did it with grace and elegance like that of his bicycle kick against rivals Manchester City during the 2010-2011 Premiere League match. A goal that is arguably being considered one of the leagues most beautiful ever.
For the mere fact that he continues to “wow” us week in and week out, we will easily forget he had any procedure done and his private news will become ancient history the first moment he steps back onto the field for the 2011-2012 season. After all, a player of his caliber, should we even care at all about his private matters?
