Wayne Rooney’s free transfer to Everton seems to have been timely enough for the star to fly to Africa – Tanzania for the pre-season friendly game against Gor Mahia.
No sooner had Manager Ronald Koeman confirmed that all players would be making the trip to East Africa, as part of their partnership with new sponsors SportPesa, Rooney had this to say:
"I'm looking forward to it, should be a good trip, "It'll be nice and hopefully I'll get on the pitch and get some game time. It's good when you go away with the team.
It's good to be around the hotel with the players, spend more time with them and get to know them more. "I've never been to Tanzania before, so I'm really looking forward to it”
