The England striker apparently tweeted a message to the channel which was subsequently deleted, explaining how powerful he found their broadcast:
Is Rooney okay? Tweeting Godtv at 2am in the morning, has he tuned to God cos of Moyes? 😂😂😂 pic.twitter.com/WRSof4kR1I— Nuvie_ (@Nuvie_) February 2, 2014
In the wake of United's defeat at Stoke City on Saturday afternoon, you'd be forgiven for thinking it was a hoax, and the fact that the tweet no longer appears to exist on Rooney's timeline would back up that argument.
What is more, it's not the first time Rooney has used Twitter to get involved with a religious broadcaster. In May last year he sent a message to Todd Bentley, a preacher, to say how much he was enjoying the show:
@IamToddBentley watching from uk. Very powerful and touching— Wayne Rooney (@WayneRooney) May 22, 2013
With United 15 points behind league leaders Arsenal with 14 matches to go this season, it's going to take something miraculous to get back into the title fight.
