thumbnail Hello,

Team-mate Ferdinand and wife Coleen congratulate the England star on his bold decision to combat his baldness, as Rooney gives his Twitter followers the news first

Manchester United fans will be seeing a different Wayne Rooney next season, not least because the forward has undergone a hair transplant.

The striker revealed to his Twitter followers that he was fed up of going bald at 25 and headed down to the Harley Street hair clinic in London to instill some life into his follicles.

“I was going bald at 25, why not [have it done?]," he said. "I'm delighted with the result.

“When it dies down you will be first to see it," he added to his followers. "Anyone recommend any good hair gel?"

Wife Coleen was one of a long list of people to congratulate the England striker, adding that she had no say in the matter.

"Wayne's had his hair done! His own decision, not me asking him like a lot [of people] are saying! Pleased for him and it will look great," she said.

Rooney’s United team-mate Rio Ferdinand couldn't resist getting involved too.

“Just don't go down the wearing an alice band route!" he joked to Rooney. "You'll be doing Head & Shoulders adverts soon!"
