London, July 15 (ANI): Soccer ace Wayne Rooney says had he not been chasing the ball on the field, he would have been a priest.
England striker Roo, 23, said that the only thing that interested him as a kid, apart from soccer, was religious studies.
He was speaking at the launch of Coke Zero's campaign to find the country's best young street footballer.
"I haven't a clue what else I could have done. I wasn't really the best in school," British tabloid The Sun quoted him as saying of his footie career.
When pressed to choose any other profession, he said: "I always enjoyed RE - so maybe a priest." (ANI)
