A video has emerged today showing Wayne Rooney and Phil Bardsley having a boxing match in a kitchen. Bardsley lands a punch on Rooney that knocks him out. He falls back on to the floor, smashing his had, and just missing the side by inches.

Here’s hoping Rooney scores today and does a bit of shadow boxing with the corner flag as his celebration.
