London, Feb 3 (ANI): Wayne Rooney, who often produces magic on the field, has confessed that hes mad about the magical world of Harry Potter.

The Manchester United ace is, apparently, spellbound by the Hogwarts character.

The Harry Potter books are favourites with a lot of children, and the same goes for a lot of adults, he said.

Id encourage any child to read them, because they really get your imagination going, he added.

I find it interesting to read about how other sportsmen got to where they are today, he said. (ANI)
