This is set to be Rooney’s year in terms of personal achievements and milestones. The England and Manchester United captain surpassed the Arsenal legend’s (Thierry Henry) goal tally mark of 175 goals to become the greatest goalscorer with a single Premier League club, while he only trails Bobby Charlton’s Manchester United record with only 8 goals to become the club’s highest goalscorer ever.
He sure won’t forget today’s feat in a hurry. What made it more memorable was scoring against arch rival Liverpool and after almost 11 years goal drought at the terrifying stadium.
He’s been under criticism for quite some time, and while accepting he has lost some pace and flair, I will in my own opinion, say he has been a victim of Mr Van Gaal’s so called “philosophy”. But it seems he’s got his mojo back now and we hope he can continue his recent scoring streak. Go Wazza!!!
