They just don’t make them like Wayne Rooney anymore, do they?
Rooney burst onto the seen when nothing more than a budding teenager, showing his supreme talent with an absolute howitzer against Arsenal on debut – he was just 16 at the time.
In other words, while his classmates were sitting their A-level exams, Rooney was down the Premier League football, netting worldies and becoming one of the most exciting prospects in the game.
From day one, it was a match made in heaven.
Rooney took to Old Trafford like a duck to water, instantly embarking on a superb goalscoring tirade that lasted for years and years on end.
Rooney’s Manchester United records and titles
During his time at the Theatre of Dreams, Rooney would win a glut of individual and team titles as he quickly established himself as one of Europe’s most fearsome hitmen.
Over the course of 13 remarkable Old Trafford years, he would win five Premier League titles and one Champions League.
His partnership with Cristiano Ronaldo was like something straight off the pages of a fantasy football site as the pair carved out their own little piece of history at one of England’s most historic establishments.
