Wayne Rooney sends incredibly bland birthday tweet to wife Coleen, hoping she 'has a nice day'
Manchester United striker was far from poetic in message to his wife
Wayne Rooney, the hopeless (or clueless) romantic.
The Manchester United striker hasn't forgot what day today is, and has sent a simple tweet out to his wife Coleen to wish her a happy birthday, accompanied by the rather bland "have a nice day", and minus any kisses.
The pair have been together since they were teenagers, and married in 2008. They have two children, Kai and Klay.
Maybe Coleen should be thankful for the personalised tweet itself. Despite Rooney being prolific on the pitch - he has notched 17 goals in all competitions for struggling United this season - he has not carried this form over to Twitter, and rarely says anything of note except retweeting Nike adverts.
Coleen, who turns 28 today, has not tweeted her acknowledgement of her husband's banal message yet, which read: "Happy Birthday to my wife @ColeenRoo hope you have a nice day."
