Wayne Rooney was painting benches in Macclesfield as part of his community service on Thursday morning – just 12 hours after playing 81 minutes in Everton’s 2-1 defeat by Chelsea in London.
It has been a topsy-turvy week for Rooney, who could not celebrate his 32nd birthday on Tuesday as he had to travel to London with the Everton squad for the Carabao Cup match, boarding a train at 3.05pm at Runcorn and only arriving back home in the early hours of Thursday morning.
He will have been pleased to have got the nod to start by Everton caretaker boss David Unsworth as the Merseysiders gave a good account of themselves in defeat.
With the match finishing at around 9.40pm on Wednesday night, Rooney might have hoped to have been allowed a lie in at his £6million mansion in Prestbury.
But the law requires him to carry out 100 hours of community service and that meant a breakfast time wake-up call and a chauffeured trip to the garden centre for another session of routine maintenance tasks which began at 9.30am.
Rooney, who earns around £150,000 pounds a week, was wearing a claret coloured track suit and new £70 white trainers as he walked in to the centre with his head down.
One onlooker said: ‘He got out of an Audi and just looked really miserable and shrugged when a staff member tried to talk to him.
‘The guy was shoveling mud into a wheel barrow and smoking a fag and tried to chat to Wayne, but he walked straight past him without stopping.’
Rooney will hope to get the chance to start at Leicester in the Premier League on Sunday as Everton bid to climb out of the Premier League relegation zone.
