FOOTIE hero Wayne Rooney left his players gobsmacked by telling them of his small willy.
The DC United boss, 37, was attempting a rousing “triumph over adversity speech” after a string of poor results.
The ex-England skipper, who once said he was “the big man”, told them that having a “tiny penis” had not stopped him.
However, it went down like a lead balloon among his Washington-based side.
A source said: “It was very funny and he hoped using personal references would make it look like the speech was from the heart.
“But the majority of his side were left bemused and struggled to understand what his sex life and size of his manhood had anything to do with what happens on the pitch.
“A few of the young lads were horrified. They don’t share the same British sense of humour.”
The dad of four — who has been accused of cheating on wife Coleen, 36, several times — also opened up about his off-field mistakes.
He told his players he came back from “f***-ups” and they could do likewise.
Rooney took over DC United in July but finished bottom of the MLS eastern conference.
