London, July 15 (ANI): Manchester United and England striker Wayne Rooney has revealed that Paul Gascoigne was his streetwise hero as a kid.

According to The Sun, Rooney remembers that, when he played football on the street as a lad, he always tried to emulate the Newcastle and Spurs' midfield legend.

Rooney said: "I used to love watching Gazza play for England. The way he went past players and how he could dribble was just brilliant. He was an amazing player to watch. He was strong, he could dribble past players, he could shoot and you could see he always enjoyed playing." (ANI)
