Rooney’s son to be Manchester United mascot

Young Kai will walk out at Old Trafford alongside his father for a crunch Premier League match against Tottenham, having done the same for the striker’s 100th England cap

Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney has revealed that he will have a special guest on Sunday, with his son Kai to be the club’s mascot against Premier League rivals Tottenham.

Rooney walked out alongside Kai and youngest son Klay for his 100th England cap in a Euro 2016 qualifier against Slovenia at Wembley in November.

Kai will do the same again at Old Trafford after Rooney revealed the news via Facebook on Saturday.

The 29-year-old wrote: “Big game tomorrow against Tottenham at Old Trafford. Looking forward to walking out again with my son Kai as mascot!”

Rooney will be hoping the little mascot brings him some luck, with United clinging onto the fourth and final Champions League spot by just two points.
