London, Dec 21 (ANI): Wayne Rooney left Sir Alex Ferguson fuming after he mocked Manchester United manager's infamous boot kick at David Beckham during the club's annual Christmas quiz.
The drama began when Rooney took part in a game of Charades on the players team, along with Ryan Giggs and Jonny Evans, going head-to-head with the coaching staff during the battle of the minds that was filmed at Old Trafford, the Daily Mail reported.
Rooney was initially struggling with giving clues to Giggs and Evans to guess the film title 'Bend It Like Beckham' but when pushed by host Clare Balding, he swept back some imaginary golden locks before pointing to Ferguson, pretending to kick a boot and then holding his eye.
Leaving his team-mates slightly perplexed, Rooney - trying to control his laugh- then repeated the combination.
Balding eventually burst into laughter, before Giggs successfully guessed the movie and Fergie, on realising he was the victim of the gag - delivered his famous icy stare with the words: 'That'll cost you!'
The clip is becoming a rage on YouTube after originally being aired on MUTV over the weekend.
Ferguson, who teamed up with assistant head physio Neil Hough and club doctor Steve McNally, had mocked Rooney in the build-up to the quiz after learning he would be part of the opposition.
Balding, who apparently had a great time anchoring the show, later tweeted a link to the clip: 'Wayne Rooney told me he had never played Charades.'
'And there was me thinking that Fergie throwing the boot at Beckham was the thing "never to be mentioned".'
'For the record, @WayneRooney was the star of the players' team. Very quick, very funny n along with Evans and Giggs, unbeatable.' (ANI)
