Wayne Rooney should take up yoga to prolong career - Edwin van der Sar

The Oxford Union is supposed to be a place of intelligent debate, but the subject of Wayne Rooney's career was on the agenda -- with an unusual suggestion from speaker Edwin van der Sar.

The former United goalkeeper thinks yoga could be a way for Rooney to prolong his career -- if the teacher is nice. That exchange of views at Oxford was reported by The Daily Star.

Van der Sar said: "He [Rooney] has been unlucky with injuries just before World Cups and European Championships. Ryan [Giggs] also had a little dip around 31 or 32, and so you change lifestyle and he got into yoga to reinvent himself."

Asked if he could imagine Rooney doing yoga, Van der Sar's reply was: "If the teacher is nice."
