THE Rooneys made a secret dash to watch their son in his first footie tournament for Manchester United – and nearly missed a day of the Wagatha Christie trial.
The proud parents promised eight-year-old Klay they would watch him play for the Red Devils’ academy team in Germany despite the stress of the court case.

The couple kept their word and hot-footed it to the airport after the first week of evidence at the High Court, and jetted off to Berlin last weekend.
A source said: “Family comes first for Wayne and Coleen. They promised Klay they would be there and they weren’t going to let him down.
“It was his first tournament for United.
“He’s played in the academy team over the last season but this was a special moment for him and his parents.
“They’re like any parents – they wouldn’t miss it for the world.”
The source added: “Coleen was in the middle of giving her evidence on the Friday.
“It was extremely stressful and she was due back in the witness box on Monday. But this was a perfect way to unwind.
“They are so proud of their boys and their achievements.”
But the trip had its complications.
Their easyJet flight home on Sunday was cancelled at the last minute just before midnight.
The couple, who were seen frantically trying to make alternative arrangements in the airport, feared the delay would mean missing Monday’s court proceedings.
But they managed to grab a flight to London the next day at 6am and headed straight to the court.
Coleen, who was wearing a surgical boot throughout the case, went back into the witness box and branded her Wag rival “evil” for a series of foul-mouthed messages.
Coleen posted on Instagram in October 2019 accusing Becky of leaking personal stories about her.
Becky, 40, denied the claims and is seeking damages for libel.
The trial finished on Thursday and the judgment will be delivered at a later date.
