Plenty of Everton fans have responded to a tweet asking them where Wayne Rooney fits into a ‘best Premier League player of all-time’ debate.
Now 34 and playing in the Championship for Derby County, Rooney began his career with Everton almost 18 years ago.
Making his debut against Southampton in 2002, Rooney made an immediate impression, and he would go on to have two successful seasons at Goodison Park before gaining interest from Manchester United.
Moving to Old Trafford in 2004, the Croxteth born striker would go on to have un-precedented success with the Red Devils, netting 253 goals in 559 games which would see him win the Premier League five times and a single Champions League title honour.
Such good performances and consistency would see Rooney feature heavily for England, gaining over 100 international caps, before an exit from Man United would see him return to boyhood club Everton in 2017.
Spending a season with the Toffees, the former England striker would then have a spell in Major League Soccer, before returning to England with Derby earlier this year.
Reacting some statistics on Rooney, Twitter account @TheGwladysSt asked fans what they thought of Rooney and below are just some of the responses.
