`We are the new Wayne and Coleen!February 28th, 2009 - 6:45 pm ICT by ANI
London, Feb.28 (ANI): A footie wonderkid hailed as the new Rooney has found his Coleen in the sizzling shape of Hollyoaks babe Melissa Reeves.
And at 16, the beauty has become the Premier Leagues youngest WAG, the Daily Star said.
Everton ace Jack Rodwell, 17, is set for stardom after wowing fans with his goal and all-round performance to help knock Aston Villa out of the FA Cup.
Pundits have compared the teenager to England hero Wayne, 23, who made his debut for Everton at 16 before moving to Manchester United.
And midfielder Jack is not just copying Waynes on-the-pitch heroics.
Like the United star, who married Coleen, 22, after meeting her on the streets of Liverpool where they grew up, Jack is reportedly smitten with his Scouse sweetheart Melissa.
The pair was pictured together for the first time earlier this week leaving the posh Gusto restaurant in Liverpools Albert Dock.
Pals have dubbed them the new Rooneys because their relationship mirrors Wayne and Coleens so closely.
Both couples met before any of them were famous. Jack and Wayne were both rising stars at Everton, while Melissa and Coleen were wannabe actresses.
While Wayne scored his first professional goal for the club five days before his 17th birthday, Jack did it aged just 17.
Jack has captained England Under 16s and is rated one of the hottest properties in the game, Wayne has gone on to win two Premier League titles and the Champions League after his 25 million pound switch to United.
A close pal of Melissa and Jack said last night: They know their relationship is almost a mirror image of Wayne and Coleens. The similarities are staggering and they get a bit of stick from their pals. (ANI)
