Wayne Rooney’s previous remarks about American football resurfaced during the recent Super Bowl LVIII, shedding light on his sentiments toward the NFL and its marquee event.

In a tweet from 2012, the revered English footballer expressed his lack of enthusiasm for the Super Bowl, stating (via GOAL): “Trying to watch the Super Bowl Final, how do they call this football. Like watching paint dry. Looking forward to the adverts and music.”

Rooney’s commentary extended to the event’s halftime performances, remarking, “Seen more guys in the studio than the players at the Super Bowl. Zzzzzzz hurry up music.”

In addition, Rooney voiced his preference for the Rugby League over the NFL, declaring, “Rugby league is far better than Super Bowl. Leeds Rhinos are to win again.

I know it’s mad, but I’m a Rhinos fan.” Despite his critique, the Super Bowl LVIII saw the Kansas City Chiefs emerge victorious over the San Francisco 49ers, clinching the title of NFL champions for the season.

Interestingly, Rooney had a connection to the NFL through his involvement with Tom Brady, a prominent figure in American football. During his tenure with Birmingham City, Brady invested in the English club, where Rooney was later appointed as manager in October of last year.

However, Rooney’s coaching stint was short-lived, as he was relieved of his duties in January, with Tony Mowbray currently leading the team.
