'ROONEY' is set to be released early next year and has been directed by BAFTA winner Matt Smith, with the documentary aiming to provide viewers with a closer look into the life of the Manchester United legend.

As well as focusing on the highs and lows of Rooney's playing career, the documentary will also look at some of the issues he faced away from the pitch and in his personal life.

The documentary will incorporate interviews from the former England captain's teammates, wife, ex-manager and opposition players.

David Beckham, Gary Neville and former Three Lions boss Sven-Goran Eriksson are all set to feature in the documentary, as well as Arsenal legend Thierry Henry and the former England captain's wife, Coleen.
