Wayne's brother John

Post by scottS4 » 02 Apr 2011, 22:53

Did any of you know that John Rooney was picked by New York Red Bulls in the MLS draft this year? The 20 year old midfielder/forward spent 3 seasons with Macclesfield in league 2 before moving across the Atlantic. He did well in the combine, and was picked in the second round of the draft by the Red Bulls.

I wouldn't be surprised if the main reason he went to the states was to get out of his brother's shadow. It must have been hard for him when he was playing in England. I know Pele's brother ended up quitting soccer just because he couldn't handle the comparisons people made whenever he played.
