Online Betting Shop: Hodgson compares Rooney to a Hollywood actor

Roy HodgsonOnline betting shops were very amused to learn that Roy Hodgson, England manager, compared Wayne Rooney to a Hollywood actor, and he backed the striker to star at the FIFA World Cup.

Pay per head sportsbooks and many people with a betting site saw that Rooney was not able to impress at a major tournament with England since UEFA Euro 2004, but the player goes to Brazil without any suspensions or injury worries.

The manager is fully aware that on the international stage, the Manchester United forward – a big favourite with online betting shops and pay per head sportsbooks – will be under pressure to make a career-defining performance, something that fans all over the world with a betting site would really like to see.

“I’m sure it must be the same for Hollywood film stars,” the English media quoted him as saying. “I’m sure you make your first film and nobody knows much about you and you get some good reviews – but one day you’re going to be Al Pacino, you’re going to be Jack Nicholson.

“And suddenly – then you’ve got to make a f*****g good film!”

Price per head services saw that Rooney was regularly carrying England’s hopes on his back, but the manager and online betting shops believe that this time around a strong supporting cast could help ease pressure on the player.

“I’d like to think the squad we’ve picked is a very good one, with lots of exciting players and Wayne could benefit from having those around him,” he added. “He won’t have to shoulder the total burden of goalscoring and goal-making that he has at previous tournaments.

“There are plenty of players out there for us who can score or make a goal so if I was Wayne Rooney, I’d be thinking ‘right, this is looking good, I’ve got good players around me, this is a great opportunity for me’.”
