Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo were devastating together at Man United

Manchester United were one of the very best teams in the world at the back end of last decade.

Sir Alex Ferguson's side won three consecutive Premier League titles from 2007-2009.

The Red Devils were also able to lift the Champions League in 2008 and made the final the year after.

And a major reason for their success was because of Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Ferguson managed to build an all-around brilliant side but it was their two star forwards that stood out.

The two struck up a brilliant partnership after Rooney joined the club from Everton in 2004.

They soon became two of the best players in the world and were unstoppable together until Ronaldo left for Real Madrid in 2009.

During their time from 2004-2009, Ronaldo scored 112 times for the club, while Rooney hit the back of the net 97 times.

They constantly set each other up and formed one of the best duos in Premier League history.

United fans were extremely fortunate to watch them play together every week.

@DevilsOfUnited posted a compilation of the two combining for the club, with the caption: "Cristiano Ronaldo x Wayne Rooney partnership was absolutely unreal. This video could make grown men cry. The glory days. 😍👏🏻"

The video has gone viral having received over 4.5k retweets and 14.5k likes. And it makes for great viewing.

They were devastating at their best.

United fans will think their partnership wasn't as long lived as it should have been, but they still provided some of the club's best moments in recent memory.

The two United legends retain a high level of respect for each other and that was conveyed by Ronaldo's comments about his former teammates earlier this decade.

“For me the power of Wayne Rooney is his mentality and strength," he told Goalhanger films, per FoxSportsAsia.

Ronaldo has admitted he misses playing alongside Rooney

“He never stops, he always runs, helps the team. He’s a fantastic team player and he scores goals. He scored important goals, for me he’s fantastic.

“He was the kid of England. Everyone loved him. He is a fantastic boy, fantastic player.

“I used to call him, between me and my mates, the pit bull. I remember when he lost the ball he was so powerful, a strong guy, he shoots unbelievable.

"He scored many goals, what can I say? I miss playing with him. The future nobody knows. Maybe we’ll play one day together again.”
