Manchester United and England fans have smiles on their faces here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they hear from the Daily Mail that Wayne Rooney made an emotional speech following England’s win and his 50 goal record breaking landmark.
The forward urged players like Harry Kane and Raheem Sterling to go forward and make sure they outdo him and get the record for themselves, and said how proud he was for himself and his family to have reached that moment.
As one of our punters notes, plenty of people have questioned Rooney and his ability to be classed as a world class forward, but considering the trophies he has won and the records he has broken, we think he is top draw.
Another valid point is that the player will only carry on scoring for United and England – and could well leave a much higher record for the next generation to break!
Manchester United fans. Do you see Rooney as one of the best in the world? Is he a player who still can get 20 goals in a season? Let us know your thoughts below!
