Wayne Rooney serenaded his DC United players with a tale about his supposedly small manhood in an attempt to connote a ‘trial over adversity’ story.
The Manchester United legend certainly needs some more motivational stories to rejuvenate his MLS side. DC United finished bottom of the MLS Eastern Conference having lost 21 of their 34 matches this season.
It is a poor return for the Washington outfit, who may have been expecting some big things when Rooney joined the club, after his promising spell at Derby County. However, it seems the former England captain has been trying everything to inspire his faltering side.

“A few of the young lads were horrified. They don’t share the same British sense of humour.”
The words ‘tiny penis’ were reportedly used by Rooney when he was talking about his own manhood. It is also understood that he was talking about his private place as part of an anecdote about him prevailing against the odds and recovering from “f*** ups”.
Considering DC’s domestic performances this season, Rooney will need to dig deep into his experience of recovering from such set-backs. Perhaps, England’s leading goalscorer will be wise to not mention his penis when motivating his players next season.
