MANCHESTER UNITED legend Wayne Rooney’s young son Kai has been pictured wearing rival City’s colours – jokingly leading to questions from Rio Ferdinand.
The now Derby manager’s wife Coleen shared a snap of their boy holding a puppy – but it was the Manchester City hoodie he had on that caught the eye.

And Ferdinand, who played over a decade alongside Rooney for United and England, could not bite his tongue.
He cheekily commented on the Instagram post with: “What’s he doing in that top????”
Despite this apparent mishap, United fans are still dreaming of seeing another Rooney banging in the goals for the club in the not-too-distant future.
It was back in December that Rooney’s eldest son, 11, joined United after initially playing Man City’s academy.
He was pictured signing a contract alongside his beaming dad and mum Coleen.
He was also seen holding up a shirt with No10 on the back – the same number Wayne sported during a glittering career at Old Trafford.
Writing on her Instagram page, Coleen added: “Special night….. congratulations Kai. I love you and I am so proud of you. Keep trying your best.”
And the aspiring striker proved to be a chip off the old block when he netted a hat-trick and set up three more in a recent Under-11s win over Stoke.
According to Twitter account New Man Utd News, the youngster’s performance led his side to a 6-3 victory.
Rooney starred for Manchester United for 13 years between 2004 and 2017, becoming club captain in 2014.
He is the club’s record scorer having scored 253 goals in 559 appearances.

Rooney, now 35, also won 12 major trophies for the Red Devils, including five Premier League titles and the 2008 Champions League.
Kai is the oldest of the Rooney kids, with the couple having three more sons – Klay, 7, Kit, 4 and Cass, 2.
Kai has previously shown some of his old man’s magic has rubbed off on him.
Last year a video of the youngster scoring an outrageous free-kick – and then celebrating with a FLIP – went viral.
