Leicester City supporters exhibited their cheeky sense of humor by donning Jamie Vardy masks during the Championship clash against Birmingham, playfully taunting Wayne Rooney. The encounter marked the first face-off between Vardy and Rooney since the Wagatha Christie scandal involving their wives. Despite Vardy’s absence due to a knee injury, Foxes fans seized the opportunity to mock the new Birmingham boss. Sky Sports cameras captured two traveling supporters entering the stadium wearing Vardy’s cardboard faces.

Amid entertaining chants like “Rooney, Rooney, what’s the score” and “Jamie Vardy, he’s won more than you,” the away fans injected humor into the competition, emphasizing the lighter side of the Wagatha Christie controversy. The scandal unfolded when Coleen Rooney accused Rebekah Vardy of leaking private stories to the press, resulting in a legal dispute that Vardy’s wife ultimately lost. Rooney and Vardy, former England teammates, were embroiled in the court trial.

Before the game, Rooney clarified that he and Vardy no longer maintain any relationship, focusing on Birmingham’s objective to secure a victory. He acknowledged Vardy’s football prowess and emphasized the need to prevent him from causing harm on the field.
