Wayne Rooney really does have the diet of an absolute champion.
If you want to be a professional footballer, you're gonna have to have a pretty great diet and make sure you stick to it, otherwise you'll end up like Tomas Brolin.
In fact, over the past few years, players like Adel Taarabt, Hatem Ben Arfa and Andy Reid have well and truly piled the pounds on.
As too has England and Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney. He's always been chunky, but his performances this season suggest he's not exactly the fittest he could be.
And with him having to sit out of United's 0-0 draw with Slaven Bilic's West Ham United at Old Trafford on Saturday, Rooney watched from the stands with his son. The Red Devils captain and 'model' professional was spotted stuffing his face with a big bad of sweets!

Sure, we're guessing most footballers have the odd treat but Rooney looked to have a proper mouthful and as you can imagine, fans were not so impressed:
Here's the best reaction to Rooney's sweetgate.
