Wayne Rooney mocked by fans as he charges £450 for tickets to hear him speak

FANS hoping to spend a night with Wayne Rooney will have to fork out up to £450 for a ticket.

For that huge price you meet the footie ace and get a signed Man United shirt.

But many mocked the cost of the Evening With . . . event.

Steven Garrett posted online: “The prices are a f****** disgrace.”

Jill Moorehead wrote on Facebook: “Not at that price.”

And David Bryan added: “Would be a waste of money.”

March’s bash, organised by Legends 7 at a Manchester hotel, will see Derby County boss Rooney, 36, interviewed by former team-mate Wes Brown.

Platinum prices, including the meet and greet, signed shirt, a free drink, three-course dinner, souvenir photo and superior seats, cost £450.

Gold tickets, excluding the signed shirt and meeting Wayne, are £225 while the cheapest, at £149, give guests just the dinner and access to the later Q and A with Brown.

The event is billed as the “first time Wayne will appear in Manchester to meet his fans in a live unscripted interview”.

Rooney, who has four sons with wife Coleen, 35, scored 53 goals for England during his 120 appearances for his country.

He left Man United for Everton in 2017 before moving to the States and Washington to play for DC United in 2018 and then becoming Derby boss in 2020.

The Championship club went into administration last year, losing 12 points, but were then docked a further nine for financial breaches.

Those 21 points mean the East Midlands outfit will almost certainly be relegated — but Rooney has said he will stay with the Rams if they do go down.
