Manchester United and England footballer, Wayne Rooney, was said to be "critical" today by close associates, following what is thought to have been a botched Harley Street hair transplant.
Rooney, who emerged from the Harley Street premises yesterday wearing a pork pie hat, apparently went home to his family, following the surgical procedure which involved having hairs taken from the back of his neck and transplanted onto the baldy bits.
"Wayne is critical," a source confided. "He shelled out a lot of wedge for that transplant, and it's possible that now he's regretting it. He was very critical this morning, even going so far as to tell wife, Coleen, that he couldn't see much of a difference, even if he used one of those magnifying shaving mirrors."
Rooney, 25, is said to be slightly embarrassed by his receding hairline, which explains his decision to have part of the lawn re-seeded.
An FA official confided that if Rooney had issues about his receding hairline and didn't want it to be overexposed in public, then he would probably be allowed to wear a hat in future matches - like Chelsea goalkeeper, Petr Cech.
In order to spare his blushes.
