Even British people can’t understand Wayne Rooney’s accent

Tuesday October 6th, 2015

England isn’t a big country, but it has a whole bunch of diverse accents. Manchester United star and English national team captain Wayne Rooney is from a town called Croxteth (good luck pronouncing that) and has a “Scouse accent,” which is native to northwest England, and Liverpool in particular. It’s apparently quite difficult for other Brits to understand. 

The BBC aired a documentary on Monday night called Wayne Rooney: The Man Behind the Goals, and viewers were left pleading for the broadcaster to turn on the subtitles.

Children can’t be bothered to play football, just Whip and Nae Nae

Jeez, you’d think he was speaking another language.
