Manchester United players star in yet another advert

Football News

Football players throughout the years have appeared in a number of television adverts, often leading to extremely cringe worthy results. 

Who can forget Gareth Southgate, Chris Waddle and Stuart Pierce's terrible Pizza Hut advert following England's penalty heart-break at the 1996 European Championships. 

Or Wayne Rooney's hilarious "they say he is a legend" line from 2013. However that did not appear to put the England and Manchester United captain off, as he once again stars in an advert for wine company Casillero del Diablo.

The advert shows Rooney, with team-mates Ander Herrera, Michael Carrick and Darren Fletcher, who is now at West Brom, walking through what appears to be a Manchester United themed cathedral.

The room is draped with pictures of past legends and all the club's previous silverware. 

The so-called emotion that is shown by the players really leaves a lot to be desired when it comes to acting skills.


Rooney's blushes were spared following his role in the last Caserillero del Diablo advert, as he was not required to say anything. But the same could not be said for the other three.

We think it's best they stick to their performances on the pitch from now on.

"They say he is a legend"

Liverpool players have also dipped their fingers in the acting pie in recent times, with Jordan Henderson, Simon Mignolet and Raheem Sterling, now of Manchester City, starring in a nivea form men advert.

When it comes to football players in adverts nobody does it better than pepsi. The soft drink company have produced some of the best commercials involving players in recent history.

Who remembers this classic?
