Even nowadays this bartender catches a Manchester United fan or two watching Wayne Rooney’s epic volley vs. Newcastle trough tear-filled eyes as they remember the good times.
The Red Devils skipper’s decline has come as no real surprise given the vast amount of games he’s played between making his debut at the age of 16 and now, but seeing his great career at Old Trafford fading away so limply is a concern.
And it seems that Rooney himself is fearful of his playing days fizzling out, according to reports from the Daily Mail.
It’s understood that the 31-year-old, who earns £250,000-per-week, is frustrated with the bit-part role he’s played under Jose Mourinho in 2017 and has already told team-mates he’ll be leaving the club at the end of the season.
Rooney, who became Man United’s all-time leading goalscorer when he netted his 250th effort for the club in January, has only made five league outings this calendar year, none of which have seen him finish a full 90 minutes, while he was an unused substitute as the Manchester giants won the EFL Cup Final at Wembley.
Wayne Rooney will join Everton this summer – agree?
