    Wayne Rooney celebrated his 30th birthday in the company of family and his Manchester United teammates last Sunday.

    But after arriving in his match-day suit at Hilton hotel for the birthday bash, the Manchester United striker did not look like he was in the mood to celebrate. 

    The United captain was coming from a 0-0 draw to Manchester City, and suffered a hard knock on the head during the game. 

    Rooney was left bloodied after accidentally crashing into City captain Vincent Kompany during the first-half of the match. Surprisingly, he didn’t flinch as a United medical staff treated the wound.  


    Midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger was one of the first to arrive at Rooney’s birthday bash with girlfriend tennis star Ana Ivanovic.

    Ivanovic, 28, has been dating the German star since last September. They were spotted holidaying together after the pre-season break.


    Rooney’s do was well attended by the forward’s team-mates both past and present, including their glamorous WAGs.

    Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha has signed a deal to purchase a mansion belonging to a British millionaire who recently passed on.

    Zaha, who rejoined Palace on a permanent deal in February after failing to make the grade at Manchester United where he earned £35,000-a-week ($74,800) will shell out £2.5million ($5.34 million) on the Surrey mansion.


    The seven-bedroom house located in Purley has six bathrooms, a cinema room and a swimming pool with a Eagles crest emblazoned on the tiling.

    Zaha’s new pad also contains a sauna, steam shower, hot tub area, family room as well as a large garage with a cellar underneath. 


    The 22-year-old, who has been capped twice by England, agreed to pay the full asking price for the house.

    Ivory Coast-born Zaha started his career at Crystal Palace before joining Manchester United in January 2013 to become Sir Alex Ferguson’s last major signing at Old Trafford.


    The skillful winger was loaned straight back to Palace, helping his boyhood side earn promotion to

  • Jurgen Klopp's new purchase.Jurgen Klopp's new purchase.

    His arrival at Liverpool was met with much excitement, and it’s no wonder that Jurgen Klopp has been in best spirits ever since he was announced as the club’s new manager.

    As if to celebrate his appointment, the candid Klopp – dubbed the ‘Normal One’ – has been seen parading a new set of wheels since he joined the club.

    The 48-year-old former Borussia Dortmund manager was spotted in an Audi on Monday, as well as a Porsche on Tuesday.

    And he certainly had a lot to smile about as he gave a thumbs up before entering the car right after his first week at the club’s iconic Melwood training ground.

    Bayern Munich celebrated their impressive start to the Bundesliga with a party at the club’s annual Oktoberfest gathering last week.

    And with seven wins from seven matches and a 5-0 trashing of Dinamo Zagreb in the Champions League last week, Pep Guardiola’s squad have been on a mighty roll.


    The players and the club’s staff donned traditional lederhosen outfits and many more arrived at the event with their partners and families.

    Striker Robert Lewandowski led the celebrations with his wife Anna, and he was all smiles after scoring 10 goals in his last three matches.


    Meanwhile, German captain Philipp Lahm admitted to German media that he missed seeing former teammate, Bastian Schweinsteiger at the club.

    “It’s when you go to Oktoberfest that you really notice that (Bastian) is no longer here,” said Lahm.

    He added jokingly, “He was always very well dressed, as you’d expect from someone who grew up in Bavaria. I’ve certainly missed him, but in all honesty he wasn’t really a beer

  • Man United starlet Depay dating Chris Brown’s ex?


    Despite a 3-0 loss to Arsenal over the weekend, Man United’s Memphis Depay decided to reward himself with a shopping trip in Manchester.

    Perhaps his trip to Selfridges was to celebrate his first Premier League goal against Sunderland last week. 

    Depay, 21, was joined by Hollywood model Karrueche Tran, 27, who was also at the Arsenal game to cheer on her rumoured new beau.  

    Tran is the former girlfriend of RnB singer Chris Brown, and she called quits on the relationship when she found out Brown fathered a child with another woman.


    Unfortunately, Depay failed to deliver against Arsenal and appeared out of ideas during his short-lived first half display. He was taken out at half time and failed to do any real defensive work in the first half.

    Both Depay, 21, and Tran went to the same hot nightspots on Saturday as they were spotted outside Suburbia nightclub and Club LIV.

    The pair were also pictured together during Depay’s summer holiday ahead of his first season in England following his

    Ahead of Chelsea’s key Premiership clash against Newcastle this weekend, Cesc Fabregas found the time to celebrate the team’s win over Arsenal last weekend with a meal out in London.

    He headed out for dinner and drinks in central London alongside girlfriend Daniella Semaan and famous Lebanese singer Elissa.

    Semaan, 40, a Lebanese socialite, has been dating the 28-year-old since 2012, when Spain picked up the Euro 2012 Championship.

    The Spanish midfielder was instrumental in the Blues’ win over Arsenal, and posted up the photo with the two women on Instagram. “Having a nice time with @elissazkh & @daniellasemaan” he wrote, while the two ladies also shared pictures of their own later on.


    Elissa, who has almost three million Instagram followers herself, is from the same country as Fabregas’ partner Semaan and the friends met again in England this week.

    On the pitch at Stamford Bridge, Fabregas produced a magnificent display to help his current team beat his former team 2-0.

  • Van Gaal enjoys night out


    Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal enjoyed a celebratory dinner out on the town on Sunday night, and like his flashy players, arrived at dinner in style.

    Just hours after seeing his side beat Liverpool 3-1, the Dutch manager along with his wife Truus and a family friend were whisked off to Wings, a favourite haunt of several footballers. 

    Wings is a popular Chinese restaurant in Manchester, frequented by both City and United players and is occasionally the ‘official venue’ for super agent Jorge Mendes to sign his contracts. 

    The restaurant is known for its wide array of speciality dishes, including Dim Sum, which was reportedly a favourite of Chelsea player Falcao, when he was still at United.


    The restaurant offers premium valet and chauffeur services – Van Gaal and the two women arrived in a stunning Bentley – complete with a personalised W1 NGS number plate.

    Van Gaal watched his United side close the gap on Premier League leaders Manchester City over the weekend with a win.

  • PHOTOS: Real Madrid star Ronaldo’s new luxury home in New York


    Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo has bought a 2,509 square foot loft worth $18.5million ($26 million) in New York.

    Naturally, the 30-year-old FIFA Ballon d’Or winner picked the swanky Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue as his street address. 

    The Real Madrid star - ranked by Forbes as the highest-paid team athlete in the world - purchased the luxury loft earlier this year, which was also the inspiration for the setting of the film “50 Shades Of Grey”.


    The three-bedroom, three-and-a-half bathroom pad belonged to Donald Trump’s business partner and Italian real-estate tycoon, Alessandro Proto.

    World-renowned designer Juan Pablo Molyneux designed the apartment, which boasts spectacular views of the city.

    Ronaldo’s purchase of the New York property comes after he earned an estimated $79m ($112 million) in 2014, according to a report.


    It is uncertain when he will move into the exclusive apartment permanently, but it certainly looks to be a long-term investment for the player who often spends his

  • Jose Mourinho takes daughter out to awards show


    He’s known to shy away from high-profile events, but Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho turned up at the GQ Men of the Year Awards with his daughter, Matilde, 18, on 9 Sept.

    The Portuguese picked up the Editor’s Special Award at the ceremony hosted by legendary actor Samuel L. Jackson.

    However, with Chelsea collecting just four points from their opening four Premier League fixtures, Mourinho, 52, appeared surly and not in the best of moods at the event. Perhaps he was also displeased with his daughter’s choice of outfit?


    Mourinho’s daughter, Matilde, who was born in 1996 to Mourinho’s wife, Matilde Faria, was delighted to be her famous father’s ‘plus one’ for the party. She is said to be a long-term friend of One Direction singer Niall Horan, who is an avid football fan. 

    The self-dubbed 'Special One’ was also joined at the glitzy event by a host of household sporting names including British Formula One superstar Lewis Hamilton.

    The lavish property comes complete with a Michael Jackson-themed bar and a personal barber’s salon.


    The 20-year-old, who has been impressive during City’s opening two Premier League victories against West Brom and Chelsea, also decked out his North West mansion with state-of-the-art bathrooms that have full television facilities.

    The bar, dedicated to Michael Jackson, is equipped with a DJ deck and also includes several pieces of memorabilia ranging from photographs of the legendary singer to his trademark leather jacket and fedora trilby hat.

    Two Liverpool cushions can also be seen on a cream sofa in a separate room where Sterling often invites his barber over for a trim.
