Soccer star spends 10 hours a week in flotation tank

Wayne Rooney reportedly spends 10 hours a week pampering himself in a flotation tank.

Wayne, 22, had the £4,000 water pod installed at his £1m Cheshire mansion on the advice of fiancee Coleen McLoughlin, 21.

The treatment is thought to have helped mend the ankle injury that kept Wayne out of England’s ill-fated Euro 2008 qualifier against Croatia last November and insiders reckon it’s working wonders for his football career.

‘At first, Wayne wasn’t exactly keen to try it out, but he was desperate to get fit after spraining his ankle so he thought he’d give it a go,’ a source tells the Sunday Mirror.

‘He noticed an immediate improvement in his condition and made his return to action a couple of weeks ahead of schedule.’

Wayne and Coleen plan to wed this summer.
