Wayne Rooney has said that completing community service – which he was given after being found guilty of drink driving – is “refreshing”.
Wayne Rooney was also banned from driving for two years following the incident in September, in which he was at the wheel of a car three times over the legal limit.
Former England international Rooney is halfway through his community service and has hailed the unpaid work as “relaxing”.
“”I’ve really enjoyed doing it,” he told talkSPORT. “It’s been working with adults with learning difficulties in a garden centre. Especially around this period, this Christmas period, going in and helping them with different things they’re making over Christmas.”
“I think it’s a place now where I’ll certainly keep in touch with when obviously my hours are over. Seeing what they do, obviously they need support in what they do, there are a lot of adults with learning difficulties who just need a little bit of help and a bit of guidance and someone there to help them.
“We actually don’t even talk about football in there. It’s a refreshing place to go and it’s relaxing, you’re working with people, doing different things which I wouldn’t have done if I didn’t go there, so it’s been great going there.”
