It would seem that we won't be treated to a repeat of Wayne Rooney's hilarious KO goal celebration any time soon, thanks to his young son Kai.
As relayed by the Daily Mirror, Rooney explained in his post-match interview against Tottenham that he wouldn't be doing his now famous goal celebration in the near future for a very valid reason.
“It’s funny, my wife went to pick up my lad from school and saw him doing that (celebration) in the classroom. I’m sure you won’t be seeing that again," Rooney said.

So it would appear that young Kai looks up to his dad in every possible way, as he was keen to show off to his friends his new, improved version of the hilarious goal celebration at school.
Clearly, broadcasters forgot to mention in their coverage of the celebration that it was the work of an experienced professional and should not be attempted at home.

"Not a big deal"
When his goal celebration threatened to over-shadow what was an impressive and arguably season-defining victory over Tottenham, Rooney was also quick to play down the incident.
He expressed his annoyance that a private video had been leaked on the day of the match, but said that no-one really thought much of his cheeky celebration, revealing in his post match interview:
"For me, it wasn’t a big issue. I was in a house with some friends.
“I spoke to the manager (Van Gaal). He didn’t see it as a big issue - other people obviously do.”
Although Rooney appears to be able to take a joke, as seen by the celebration, he also admitted that he had also received a lot of stick from his United and England team-mates after footage showing the striker being knocked to the ground by Stoke defender Phil Bardsley emerged, following a night with pals at Rooney's Cheshire mansion last month.
Still speaking to reporters in his post-match conference following the Red Devils' impressive 3-0 victory over top-four rivals Tottenham, Rooney confessed: "There has been stick around the place, at United and England training, but you’d expect that. They’re a group of lads"
"I’ve always loved boxing. Unfortunately, sometimes, it didn’t go too well for me!"
