Could Wayne Rooney have benefited from more guidance?

You may have heard recently that the private life of Manchester United and England striker Wayne Rooney has been subject to allegations in several British tabloid newspapers.

Once again, a rich and famous sports star has apparently not been able to resist the temptations associated with his status and his bank account. Am I the only one who is not surprised? To be honest it didn’t shock me at all.
