Throughout his time in the spotlight, Wayne Rooney has never been that far away from controversy, and it seems, even when he is forced to stay at home, he is still managing to cause a scandal.

Last week, the former England captain found himself under fire after he was at the centre of a row about footballers’ wages, as well as receiving a police caution for breaking the social-distancing rules, while catching up with old teammate Kyle Walker – two days before it was revealed Walker had hosted a party for two sex workers.

And, understandably, Wayne’s long-suffering wife Coleen – who’s mum to their four sons, Kai, ten, Klay, six, Kit, four, and two-year-old Cass – isn’t impressed.

“Coleen says Wayne is his own worst enemy – he just keeps digging himself into these holes,” our Rooney insider says.

“She is seriously irritated about this latest debacle, which many have seen as a tone-deaf moan about pay cuts during this time of national crisis.

“And, as for Kyle Walker, who clearly would have caused pain and embarrassment for his family – well, she doesn’t want her husband hanging around with him or even talking to him.

“Wayne is always on his soapbox about how he’s been made a prime target for everything and, to be honest, Coleen is just sick of it. She’s been hearing it for years and she thinks he needs to take responsibility. She feels let down by him again.”

Wayne hit the headlines when he criticised both the Government and the Premier League for suggesting that top players could take a 30 per cent pay cut to help subside the clubs’ non-playing staff.

Despite many people around the country either losing their jobs or taking big wage cuts, Wayne, 34, said he felt it was unfair for footballers – some of whom earn up to £300,000 a week – to be singled out.

“If the Government approached me to help support nurses financially or buy ventilators, I’d be proud to do so, as long as I knew where the money was going,” Wayne – who now plays for Championship club Derby County – wrote in his newspaper column.

“I’m in a position where I could give something up. Not every footballer is in the same position. Yet suddenly the whole profession has been put on the spot with a demand for 30 per cent pay cuts across the board.

“Why are footballers suddenly the scapegoats? How the past few days have played out is a disgrace.”

He also spoke about a player at Derby, who is on £2,000 a week, and wouldn’t be able to take a pay cut because he still lives with his mum and pays for all of his family. And, while his comments were praised by some, lots of fans felt they were completely out of touch with what’s going on, although it was later revealed Premier League footballers would be donating £3million to the NHS.

And our insider says Coleen, 34, thinks he should have kept quiet, especially because they are both from working-class backgrounds in Liverpool, where lots of people are struggling financially due to the pandemic.

“Coleen thinks commenting publicly about footballers’ pay was stupid – it’s not that she disagrees with him, but she knows that you have to be mindful of the public mood with these things,” we’re told.

“Some people feel he’s made an idiot of himself and she thinks he could have found a way to express himself in a different way. He also should have known the reaction it would get, and how it would be picked up.”

The insider continues, “Coleen has so much respect for the NHS, and she also has friends with family who are key workers and knows the worry they face as they have to go do their jobs.

“She’s aware how Wayne’s comments sound to them – and to all the people who have lost their jobs, incomes and businesses because of this. Coleen and Wayne are the lucky ones, and instead he’s talking about them being scapegoats. It’s made a lot of people angry, especially from their hometown.”

To make matters worse, Wayne was also given a police caution for breaking the lockdown rules after he was spotted by officers talking to his former England teammate Kyle Walker.

Wayne had taken two of his four sons to Prestbury golf course – which is near his Cheshire mansion – for an evening walk when he bumped into neighbour Kyle, with his ex-partner and their three sons.

A source said, “Their kids go to the same school and spotted each other and understandably ran over. The families stopped to talk when all of a sudden, the police swooped on them. It was all totally innocent and not deliberate.”

After their chance meeting it was revealed Kyle had hosted a £2,000 party at his flat with a friend and two sex workers several days before, despite telling fans to stay at home to save lives. And Wayne’s association with Kyle has left Coleen feeling uneasy because of her husband’s own history with sex workers.

When he was 16 – at the beginning of his relationship with Coleen – Wayne paid for sex at a local brothel, and when Coleen was pregnant with Kai, it was claimed he had enjoyed threesomes with two former escorts Jenny Thompson and Helen Wood.

Coleen forgave him and despite yet more misdemeanours – including being arrested for drink driving after taking home party-girl Laura Simpson while Coleen was pregnant with Cass, and getting himself locked in a police cell for being drunk and disorderly at an airport – they have been working hard to get their marriage on track.

However, the situation with Kyle has left Coleen fuming at Wayne again, as he seems to keep getting dragged into this type of scandal.

“Kyle has apparently asked Wayne for advice on how to handle the situation, which has left Coleen furious,” our source says.

“She doesn’t want him anywhere near Kyle. It was pure coincidence they bumped into each other, but she’s warned Wayne not to meet him. She just doesn’t want Wayne to be a part of that footballers’ world where wild partying and seeing other women is normalised.”

The insider continues, “He’s not drinking at the moment, and that’s the most important thing. And, given the situation, he won’t be out and tempted to party or anything. She just hopes he gets back on track soon, as things had been getting better.”
