Everton forward Wayne Rooney made a fine start to his life as a Monday Night Football pundit by trolling his co-pundit Jamie Carragher almost immediately.

The former Manchester United man had a number of high-profile duels with the former Liverpool defender during their peak years, and Rooney couldn’t help but take the chance to bring that up.

After an introduction from presenter David Jones, Rooney was quick to troll Carragher over their old rivalry, saying this was the closest his old England colleague had ever got to him.

Rooney is in the Sky Sports studio to cast his eye on Chelsea’s match at Watford, and was also asked about Tottenham striker Harry Kane and his future.

Rooney himself was once in Kane’s position of being the hottest young striker in English football, and he’s suggested he’ll have big ambitions before long, even if he currently seems happy firing them in on a weekly basis for Spurs.

It’ll certainly be interesting to hear more from the 32-year-old as the night goes on, with a player of so much pedigree and experience at the top level bound to have some wisdom to offer to viewers.
