Manchester United fanatic McIlroy yesterday tweeted pictures of the signed jersey he received from Wayne Rooney which the English international had signed: “To Rory, Best of luck this year. Would love to see you at Old Trafford.”
McIlroy tweeted his appreciation: “Thanks @WayneRooney for the signed shirt! Hopefully see you at old Trafford soon!”
Ironically McIlroy’s girlfriend, Caroline Wozniacki, is a Liverpool fan who wore a Steven Gerrard jersey as she warmed up for the WTA Qatar Ladies Open in Doha last year.
