Wayne Rooney: 'I had to change my Gamertag'

"Too many people found out it really was me," says FIFA star

Man U striker, Wayne Rooney, had to change his Gamertag because too many people discovered him on Xbox Live, he's revealed. The difficult life of an international footballer, eh?

"My Gamertag name used to be Wazza10 but I had to change it when too many people found out it really was me," Rooney told The Metro on his FIFA 10 press rounds.

"I still play FIFA regularly online though," he said. Then again, he is the "brand ambassador" for the game, so he would say that wouldn't he?
