After 13 whole years he is going to play in a Premier League game not wearing Manchester United’s jersey. Wayne Rooney is back to his boyhood club, Everton, having written his name in United’s history books in golden letters.
Other than the titles he won with the Red Devils, he has a personal record to be very proud of, being the leading scorer in the club’s history, with four goals more than legendary Sir Bobby Charlton.
It is fantastic to have left that mark behind. It is a great legacy to have left. I left United with great memories. It was a successful time for the club and it was great for me
Rooney told reporters, a week before his… second Premier League debut with Everton. As for his record at Man United;
You never know, if they get someone like Messi or Ronaldo the record might get broken! But I think that in football now, players don’t really tend to stay at clubs for that long. The only way I can see it being broken is if someone stays for the same period of time that I did
the former United captain said.
