Wayne Rooney celebrated another landmark on Wednesday, as the Manchester United striker reached 19 million fans on Facebook.
Rooney is currently ranked as the eighth most popular athlete on the planet, and is by far and away the most 'liked' footballer in the Premier League based on his Facebook fanbase.
The Old Trafford star's following is expected to grow even more over the summer, with Rooney set to take centre stage for England at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, before returning to Manchester United aiming to bounce back from a disappointing 2013/14 campaign.
