Ed Sheeran shares singalong with Wayne Rooney after Manchester gig

Wayne Rooney is capable of many things including scoring wonderful goals and inspiring Manchester United to victory. However the ability to sing in tune certainly isn't amongst his many talents.

How do we know? Well, because the England international has been caught in the act, crooning away with none other than Ed Sheeran at a pub during an impromptu together. The unlikely duo were pictured together after Rooney attended a gig by the A-Team singer last week, however it's now emerged that did much more than just pose for a snap.


The pair met up afterwards at the Sir Ralph Abercrombie pub in Manchester and were filmed performing the singer's top 10 hit "Lego House" together. Pub boss Mike Christodoulou told the Sun: “Ed pulled out his guitar and him and Wayne had a little sing song — it was good vibes all round.

“They planned it earlier in the day and it was all kept hush hush. It went on until almost 4am and everyone had a really good time. There was no trouble from anyone and it was just a real pleasure to have the guys in our pub.

“I think they can get a bit sick of posh wine bars and like the home comforts pubs offer.”

The Sun also add that rapper Example joined the party later on, joining in on another impromptu performance. Rooney's love of music is well-known, and he booked Welsh rockers Stereophonics to play at his wedding to wife Colleen back in 2008.


Although Rooney appeared in good spirits in the video, he is likely to be less than impressed with Manchester United's efforts on the pitch. The Red Devils fell to a 1-0 defeat against rivals Manchester City on Sunday, which consigned them to their worst league start in 28 years.

Rooney returned to action for that game following his suspension for being sent off against West Ham, but could do little as Sergio Aguero's goal wrapped up all three points despite a stirring comeback from the Red Devils.

Red card

The game hinged on the referee Michael Oliver's decision to send off Chris Smalling in the first half. Despite falling behind after going down to 10 men, Manchester United had their chances to snatch a point late on - and Rooney says he was encouraged by the late rally.

“We responded well and defended well [after falling behind],” he told MUTV. “I felt for long periods of the game we were the better team. We took control of the game with 10 men and created the better chances.

“We were unfortunate not to get anything out of the match and we're disappointed to leave with no points after a great effort.”
