Wayne Rooney unable to vote in General Election because he can’t put a cross in the box anymore

The Man United and England legend has struggled to put a cross in the right place for a few months now


Wayne Rooney was the only Premier League player eligible to vote in the General Election who failed to do so today.

The Man United captain attempted to place his vote but was unable to do so after he struggled to put a cross in the box.

Something he’s struggled with for the last couple of years.

We’re sorry, Wayne. We don’t mean it

Fellow voter Lee Satchell saw the whole thing unfold: “He was really struggling and looked low on confidence. Not like the old Wayne.

“He was trying hard but all his crosses went wide of the box, or way over.

“Next time he’d be better off getting someone to vote by proxy, Marcus Rashford maybe… when he’s old enough.”

We love you really, Wayne

The majority of the players had no problem with the process, in fact Harry Kane voted three times, bagging yet another hat-trick.

Although Jack Wilshere did suffer a fairly serious injury to his hand when his styrofoam bones crumbled under the weight of the ballot paper.
