In a shock report, Rooney admitted he gambled away huge amounts of money during his career, lured in by online betting sites, that he says hindered his international appearances.

He told The Sun gambling "sucks you in".

“I was a young lad who’d just come into a lot of money," Rooney explained to 32Red's Stay in Control campaign at Derby's Moor Farm training ground as he looks to use his partnership with the betting company to speak out about the ugly side of gambling.
"For an away game with Manchester United you stay in a hotel – and with England you’re in a hotel for seven to ten days.

"It was easy to place bets by phone. It didn’t feel like real money. It wasn't like I had to go into a bookies and put bets where there are limits.

"Before you know it you’ve lost a good bit and you don’t realise the amount you’re putting on.

“I won at the start and thought it was easy money. It sucks you in a bit more and I ended up losing, ended up down.

You’re there to play for your country or club and when you’re losing money the way I was then it will affect you.

“Thankfully I managed to pay up what I lost and I didn’t gamble again. I’ve learned from my mistakes.

"If you carry on gambling, you lose more. That’s when you can get sucked into a bad situation.”
