Life won’t be getting any easier for Wayne Rooney in the next few weeks, in fact, life will be a little more difficult for the Manchester United and England forward as more stories come out about his extramarital affairs. This is part of being a famous athlete these days: you make the millions and you have to deal with the pressure of the public and the press.
It’s no secret that professional athletes, movie stars and just about anyone in the entertainment industry have affairs. It is almost understood by now that it happens. Last year’s Tiger Woods’ story was the media’s big story of the year, and why not? The public feasted on the allegations and the sexual preferences of the world’s single most popular sports icon.

Cheating unfortunately is almost a part of life, a part that a great majority of us would like to remove sooner rather than later. It’s also a part that many like to hide for fear of repercussion and humiliation. Why do it then?

Unfortunately,  the terrible deed is spreading like a contagious disease with no end in sight. The football world is now being effected and FIFA (International Federation of Association Football) is now conducting their investigation.
