Wayne Rooney has revealed he will have a special companion by his side when he takes to the field at Old Trafford on Sunday - his eldest son Kai.

Last November Kai and his younger brother Klay were mascots when their father won his 100th England cap against Slovenia at Wembley.

And the striker revealed in a post on Instagram on Saturday evening that five-year-old Kai will accompany him on to the pitch for the Spurs game in Manchester this weekend.

"Big game tomorrow against Tottenham at Old Trafford. Looking forward to walking out again with my son Kai as mascot!" the 29-year-old United captain wrote next to a picture of him and his two sons on the pitch before the Slovenia match.

Rooney scored the opening goal in a 3-1 win that night and United will be hoping for a similar result when they face their rivals for Champions League qualification on Sunday.
