Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney has designed a motorbike which will be auctioned off and could fetch £60,000 for charity.
As a personal touch, Rooney has autographed a No 10 shirt, which he designed to by on the petrol tank of the motorbike.
The motorbike that is going to auction comes complete with a painting of Wayne Rooney’s celebration after ‘that goal’ against Manchester City on the rear mudguard.
A £40,000 to £60,000 estimate has been on the bike, the auction takes place at the Bonhams sports memorabilia in Chester on 20th February 2013.
Money raised will go to KidsAid, a Danish children’s charity which helps sick youngsters.
Rooney said he had been “really excited” to be involved in the “unique” design alongside Danish motorcycle manufacturer Lauge Jensen.
“The bike we have designed takes its inspiration from the celebration of my overhead kick against Manchester City last season. The goal has been described by others as being of the highest quality and technical excellence, powerful and beautiful.
“I hope you will agree that the bike is all of this and more. The fact that the funds raised will go to kids in Denmark is a great way for me, on behalf of all the players at Manchester United, to say ‘thank you’ for the support we receive from the Danish people.”
