A new Wayne Rooney documentary is coming to Amazon Prime Video in February 2022, detailing the life on and off the field of the England and Manchester United record scorer.

The film is called Rooney, and will be available to stream for anyone with an Amazon Prime account. Amazon have developed a number of football documentaries recently, including films and series on Arsene Wenger, Arsenal and Tottenham.

Rooney first burst onto the scene as a 16-year-old at Everton as one of the most hotly-anticipated young English stars ever, before winning five league titles, a Champions League and playing in MLS. The former England captain has since taken the reins at Derby County as manager.

"I wanted to be honest and touch on everything that has happened in my life, which is important,” Rooney said of the film. 

"If I do it and I am not honest or I don’t speak about things it wouldn’t be real, so it was about me coming out and people seeing me and my family for who we are and not what is being portrayed of us as a family.

"I want people to have a better understanding of me as a person really. Throughout a young sportsperson’s life they go through difficult periods and there is a lot of me talking about moments where I was really down, I didn’t want to be around anyone."

When will the Wayne Rooney documentary be out?

The documentary will be released by Amazon Prime on February 11, 2022.
