Wayne Rooney has revealed the secret to his incredible season - going bald.
Rooney’s 30-goal romp has seen him score 10 with his head as he aims for the Premier League, Champions League and World Cup.
But as he posed with football’s greatest prize at the England leg of Coca-Cola’s World Cup trophy tour, he said: “I’m still working on my heading.
“But probably the goals are all coming off my bald patch! That’s helping me to score.
“I have been working on my heading a lot and thankfully that’s paying off.
“This season I’ve been getting in the box more and working on the timing of my runs and my finishing.
“It’s also because I’ve been playing up front every game. That’s definitely the main reason for me scoring a lot of goals.
“I haven’t worked back as much as I did before. I’ve played a lot of games up on my own and when you are the lone striker you have to stay up the pitch and be the focal point of the team.
“That means I’m not getting back as much and doing more of my work in the opponents’ half.”
