Wayne Rooney in bodily hygiene row with X Factor no-hoper Frankie Cocozza
Manchester United star Wayne Rooney was at the centre of an unlikely Twitter spat with The X Factor ‘wildman’ Frankie Cocozza.
The reality TV star tweeted: “#CelebsThatLookLikeTheyStink not really a celeb but I bet his pits are stinking, along with his breath @waynerooney.”
You might wonder what Rooney would gain from rising to the bait, but he responded to the young upstart with a slight on his singing talent.
He wrote: “Sorry who are u again. Oh yeah i remember ur the kid who was on x factor who couldnt sing.”
Caught between excitement at mixing it with the big boys and taking offence at the accurate assessment of his singing talents, Cocozza wasn’t quite sure where to go next.
“Just got merked by Rooney, personally I think that’s quite sick,” he tweeted, adding, “Thankyou for making my day, knew I’d hit a nerve. I don’t like you at all.. But bring home the goods this summer please.”
