Wayne Rooney has proven that we don’t need certificates to become successful in life after all.
The Manchester United and England captain agrees that education plays a big role in enhancing our lives, but it surely isn’t the only determining factor in one’s achievements.
Most scholars with Ph Ds, GSCEs, PGDs and whatever we choose to call them, have had to dump those “papers” for successful adventures in other non-academic fields.
The 31-year-old player who is United’s leading goal scorer with 250 goals – and more in sight, was mocked after posting a hilarious tweet following his side’s demolition of Hull City’s EFL Cup dream.

“Have to say our fans tonight was unbelievable,” the captain wrote on Twitter, drawing a sarcastic response from his disgruntled fan who discovered an error in the grammar.

You can’t be a captain of Manchester United or England national team if your brains are truly in your boots, right?
The Red Devils qualified for EFL Cup’s final at Hull City’s expense despite losing their last game.
However, such a wonderful night was marred by Rooney’s careless tweet.
“Does Rooney have any GCSEs seriously?” the fan asked.
Surprisingly, the father-of-two confirmed he doesn’t have a GSCE, but was supercool about it. Any way, who needs “papers” when you’re Wayne Rooney.
He replied: “No I don’t,” adding two Cool Guy emojis to complement his statement.
Rooney’s last minute equalizer against Stoke City was all he needed to surpass Sir Bobby Charlton’s record as United’s all-time leading goalscorer.
There are speculations in the media that a Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua has tabled a £600,000 bid for the England international footballer.
The club recently secured services from Carlos Tevez, the former Manchester City player, as China splashes cash to boost its image as a great footballing country.
