London, Sept 7 : When he's not honing his skills on the pitch, Wayne Rooney is online trying to improve his virtual footie ranking.
The Man Utd player has admitted that he plays Fifa 08 on his PlayStation about five times every night at home.
"I probably play about five times every night at home. I love playing it online because you're speaking to different people and trying to build your points up," News of the World quoted Rooney, as saying.
Rooney's Fifa fixtures haven't gone down too well with his wife though.
A friend said: "Wayne is completely hooked. Coleen doesn't get a look-in when he is on it. It drives her mad."
However, it's not just football that gets Rooney goggle-eyed.
"I watch a lot of TV. I love 24 and The Sopranos. My favourite film is probably Goodfellas. I watched it again the other night," he said.
