Angry Rooney

Wayne Rooney is being considered to feature in the new Angry Birds game as the game’s developer Rovio has linked up with Everton in an effort to enhance their appeal and exposure around the world, particularly in Far East markets.

The presence of Rooney on their books, following his return to his roots from a record-breaking 13-year stint at Manchester United, is considered to be key to those plans and it could be that the all-time leading goalscorer for the Red Devils and England is soon worked into a spin-off version of Angry Birds.

“We have a history of doing Angry Bird homages of real-life characters so obviously now we are in collaboration (with Everton) we can work together to bring interesting characters and profiles into the games,” said Rovio Entertainment’s chief marketing officer, Ville Heijari.

“Potentially Wayne Rooney would be involved. It is not just enough that we reach mobile players; we want to reach sports fans, television spectators, so it is a big audience we are going after.”
