Posted: Updated:

An angry mob threatened the life of soccer star Wayne Rooney at his home on Thursday night, according to The Telegraph (UK).

The mob reportedly gathered outside Rooney's mansion and chanted, "Join Man City and you die."

Cheshire police were called to the scene to clear the mob, which "consisted of men wearing balaclavas and Eric Cantona-masks," according to the report.

Rooney agreed to a new contract with Manchester United today, shortly after it was reported that the 24-year-old told chief executive David Gill that he wanted to leave the team.
