Wagatha Christie trial live: Wayne Rooney will testify – and Jamie Vardy is in court for the first time | UK News

Paul Stretford, Wayne Rooney’s agent, is now facing questions from Rebekah Vardy’s attorney, Hugh Tomlinson.

Stretford admits he talks to Wayne Rooney “virtually every day” and has been involved in building the family’s new home.

He agrees that he has done work for Coleen Rooney from time to time.

Stretford says Rooney is “selective” about which work opportunities she accepts, and it’s management that deals with them when they do.

Hugh Tomlinson says that in 2019 there was “a lot of negative coverage” about the Rooney family.

When asked if he had been involved in the matter, Stretford replied, “More often than not.”

He agrees that he has liaised with Coleen Rooney “on occasion” and has “assumed authority” to handle media notifications on her behalf.

Stretford agrees he would often decide whether or not to bother Rooney with media requests.

He adds that he became aware in 2017 and 2019 that information about Rooney was leaking to The Sun newspaper.

When asked how he became aware in 2017, he said: “I had a conversation with Mr Rooney, who said Coleen was extremely upset about the leak of information and was in a place where she didn’t know who to trust.”

Stretford says he didn’t tell Coleen about it “at that time.”

“I had no reason to discuss it, I took Mr Rooney at his word and we went from there,” he says.
