To pass a bit of time during Manchester United’s tour of China, Wayne Rooney decided he would do a live Q&A session live on his Facebook to his 16,000 viewers.

The questions came from his followers and ranged from everything Manchester United while also including his foundation and his upcoming testimonial.

Ashley Young joined Rooney in their hotel room and posed as the question asker and, for the most part, did a very good job. However, when the question ‘Who is the slowest player at Manchester United’ cropped up, Young couldn’t control his laughter.

While Rooney took a little while to think about his answer, Young was sniggering. When the Manchester United captain finally gave the answer as Daley Blind, it left both Rooney and Young in hysterics.

Take a look at the video below: (The question occurs at 8:20)

We’re not too sure exactly why Rooney and Young find it so funny but we can only assume that Blind is the butt of plenty of jokes about his lack of pace on the training ground.

Rooney goes on to expand on his answer:

“He makes up with his brain but if we ever had a race, he’ll be last.”

While Young added: “I’m going to agree but I’m not going to disagree.”

And they both continued to snigger like naughty school kids. Poor old Blind.
