The England striker scored 253 goals in his 13 years at Old Trafford, breaking
Sir Bobby Charlton’s mark that had actually stood for 44 years. Sir Alex Ferguson has currently said it is a tally that will not be broken and Rooney believes the same – unless the Reds land a world super star like Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi.
The former United skipper said: “You never ever understand, if they get someone like Messi or Ronaldo the record might get broken!
“However I believe that in football now, players do not truly have the tendency to remain at clubs for that long. The only method I can see it being broken is if somebody stays for the exact same amount of time that I did.Read More
“It’s an excellent
tradition to have actually left behind at United. I have actually got some terrific memories of an effective time for the club. It was excellent for me.
“I liked it there, loved dealing with the players, but it was the correct time for me to move on and I feel I have actually definitely made the ideal choice.”
Rooney raised the Europa League, League Cup and Community Guard with United in his last season but there is one minute that stands apart as his favourite.
Cristiano Ronaldo was a prolific scorer for United.Understandably, it was the game against Stoke in January when he broke Charlton’s record with a last-minute equaliser.He stated:”To score that objective against Stoke for United last season was an emphasize for me because of exactly what it meant. It was a huge minute for me. “Winning the prizes was great, but it was tough sometimes because I didn’t feel like I belonged to winning the League Cup and Europe League. “However it was a special moment to beat Sir Bobby.
It was a proud minute.”
