Posted By: Staff

London, May 7 (ANI): Footballer Wayne Rooney has achieved a new 'goal' - he has taught a family parrot to speak his son's name.

Wayne, 24, after getting the parrot to start talking, says he "won't shut up".

After befriending the pet during a visit to in-laws with family, he has been training the African Grey to increase its vocabulary for a "laugh".

The bird after learning to speak his son, Kai's name, however, won't stop squawking words left, right and centre.

"It was funny at first but now it just won't shut up," The Daily Star quoted the footie as speaking with Match Of The Day magazine. (ANI)
