In a surprising turn of events, Tom Brady and Wayne Rooney have joined forces in Birmingham, and their unlikely partnership is causing quite a stir. The two sporting legends, known for their incredible achievements in American football and soccer respectively, have come together with the goal of restoring Birmingham City to the Premier League.
Their first encounter may involve Brady playfully reminding Rooney of his thoughts on Super Bowl XLVI back in 2012. Rooney, like millions of others, watched as Brady and the New England Patriots lost to the New York Giants. In a tweet, he expressed his boredom with the game, comparing it to watching paint dry. Little did he know that years later, he would be working alongside the NFL legend.
Rooney, Manchester United’s all-time leading goal scorer and former England record scorer, is excited about Brady’s involvement in the club. In his opening press conference, Rooney mentioned that Brady is ambitious and fully committed to moving the club forward. It seems that both men have more in common than just their sporting prowess – they are also devoted parents. Rooney has four sons, while Brady has two sons and a daughter.
Brady, who retired earlier this year as one of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history, holds numerous records and has won seven Super Bowl titles. His impact on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, owned by the Glazer family who also own Manchester United, was immense. Similarly, Rooney made a name for himself at Manchester United, winning numerous titles and becoming the club’s all-time leading goal scorer.
With their combined influence and success, Brady and Rooney are set to attract top players to Birmingham City. Already, the club has secured a loan deal for defender Emmanuel Aiwu from Italian side Cremonese, thanks to the vision of new owner Tom Wagner and investment from Brady.
While Brady may not receive the same level of stardom at Birmingham as he did in American football, he seems to be enjoying his involvement with the club. He attended their EFL Championship opener against Leeds United and even made a surprise visit to a local pub before the game. The team went on to win 1-0, and Brady’s presence in the dressing room before the match may have played a part in their victory.
Both Brady and Rooney are thrilled about the opportunity to work together and are determined to bring success to Birmingham City. Despite their differing opinions on the excitement of a Super Bowl, their combined experience and talent have the potential to elevate the club to new heights. Fans can expect an exciting journey ahead as these two sporting legends make their mark on the Midlands.
