Prime Video shares the official premiere date for the documentary on the life of English professional football player and manager Wayne Rooney, exclusively on February 11, 2022
Rooney gives Prime members unprecedented access to one of football’s greatest strikers as the man himself recounts stories from some of the most important moments of his life, with testimonies from the people closest to him, including family, friends, and his wife, Coleen.
Rooney offers a window into Wayne’s formative years; from his time as a young boy growing up in the Liverpool district of Croxteth, through to his teenage life where his emerging stardom led to him facing intense scrutiny from the British press.
The film places Rooney’s professional career under a microscope, journeying through some of the highest and most challenging moments in the life of England’s record goal scorer.
Featuring intimate interviews with footballing greats such as David Beckham, Gary Neville, Rio Ferdinand, and Thierry Henry, they illustrate first-hand accounts of Rooney as a teammate and an opponent. Meaningful testimonies from the likes of Rooney’s first Premier League manager David Moyes and Rooney’s first England manager Sven-Göran Eriksson, describe the seemingly unlimited potential they saw in Rooney at such a young age.
