10 Yetis Wonders about Footballers Personal PR as Rooney has to Pay Damages to Moyes

Breaking news *** it has just been announced that Wayne Rooney will have to pay damages to David Moyes about a few white lies he is alleged to have spouted in his Auto-Biography.

There is no doubt in my mind that Rooney (who used a ghost-writer for the book) did not say those things (or maybe not to the extent that it was written) but instead it was seen as a good PR and sales tactic by the publishers and co-author.

The amount he has to pay has not been announced but it will be a blow to Rooney, especially as it probably was not his idea to say those things.

Another pain in the bum he does not need when he just needs to be concentrating on his career.
