Wayne Rooney confident of keeping hold of Manchester United goalscoring record

Everton striker Wayne Rooney does not feel anyone will manage to break his Manchester United goalscoring record unless his former club decide to sign one of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.


The England international ended his 13-year association with United earlier in the summer after it was known that his chances in the starting lineup would be restricted at Manchester United. Rooney was largely used from the substitutes’ bench during the previous campaign, and it was not until the final stages of the Premier League season, had he earned a regular role in the starting lineup.

In a report by Metro, Rooney is quite confident of preserving his scoring record of 253 goals which he achieved after surpassing Sir Bobby Charlton’s tally earlier in January. When asked on whether his feat would ever be broken, Rooney admitted that it would be hard as players don’t tend to stay at one club for long periods of time. However, the Englishman believes that former teammate Ronaldo and Barcelona star Messi could be two potential candidates, who could threaten his record.

ROONEY CONTINUES TO WISH ENGLAND WELL

Wayne Rooney sent the England national team good luck messages as they prepare for their clash against Scotland in the World Cup qualifiers.


The player is on vacation in Greece where he is enjoying an extended summer break after being snubbed from the Three Lions set-up.

Gareth Southgate complained that Rooney was not getting top level football so he went with the other options. Rooney took to Instagram to wish the team well, posting: “Good luck to the lads against Scotland today. Do the business @England.”

Rooney is no longer an automatic option for club and country as his form drops. With United set to add two strikers this summer, things do not look for him. Even Marcus Rashford has overtaken the star in the pecking order. United could sign Alvaro Morata and Andrea Belotti soon as Jose Mourinho wants the best legs at the club.

ROONEY SAYS HE STILL HAS IT IN HIM

Embattled Manchester United skipper has reiterated his desire to continue playing at the highest level despite many questioning his abilities.


There have been speculations that Rooney could exit the team at the end of the current season but he has said he still has “a lot to offer” the team.

Coach Jose Mourinho has favoured Zlatan Ibrahimovic throughout the season and the Swede delivered a decent figure. However with the player out for long time, Rooney would be required to step up.

“I feel I can contribute quality, composure, experience, and know-how, how to get over the line, whether it’s to win the league or finish top four or get the final. That’s a lot of experience I can contribute to the team,” Rooney said.

The Three Lions star scored the second goal in the 2-0 victory at Burnley after getting on the starting line up for the first time since March. He also grabbed the goal in the game against Swansea. Continue reading ROONEY SAYS HE STILL HAS IT IN HIM

Is Wayne Rooney’s time in Stamford Bridge reaching it’s end?

Since ZlatanIbrahimovic arrived to Manchester United on July of 2016, he has become the main offensive force of the Premier League club while Wayne Rooney has consistently been dropped to the sidelines on a more consistent basis.


Jose Mourinho prefers utilizing ZlatanIbrahimovic alongside Paul Pogba and Juan Mata as those are the primary goal-scoring outputs of Manchester United in this season and it’s evident by the fact that those also are the players that have scored the most amount of goals so far.

Unfortunately for Wayne Rooney, he has been seeing more time on the bench than ever before and now rumors are starting to emerge that have been linking the English attacker to a move to another Premier League club.

One of the teams that have been recently linked with Wayne Rooney, Everton appears to be most likely where the Englishman might move in the near future. Continue reading Is Wayne Rooney’s time in Stamford Bridge reaching it’s end?

Rooney wants to fight

Wayne Rooney has stated that he will not accept a reduced role at Manchester United without fighting.


The England forward who has lost his place in the starting line-up at Manchester United believes that he still can play at the highest level and that he is going to fight for his place.

The player said that he is still 31 years old and that he feels that there is still a lot of football left in him. Some pundits have argued that the player should accept that he can no longer play 60 games a season and that it is important that he have some rest.

Wayne Rooney Would Be Great for the MLS Claims Portland Timbers Owner

The MLS is expected to be one of the destinations for Wayne Rooney once he enters into the latter stages of his career.


The 31-year-old is still at the peak of his powers and may carry on playing for Manchester United at least for the next couple of years. However, the MLS clubs have already begun the process of wooing the superstar to North America. Recently, Portland Timbers owner Merritt Paulson claimed that the striker would be a great addition to the league. Only recently, Major League Soccer has seen rapid expansion in terms of big-money moves.

The likes of Didier Drogba, Frank Lampard, and Steven Gerrard have all come from the Premier league after having achieved immense success. Rooney has also experienced a success of equal nature and he is one of the popular players throughout the world. Bringing the England international to the MLS will provide the league with an even bigger publicity. However, signing Rooney will be easier said than done since the 31-year-old is expected to attract a lot of big-money offers from China, Middle East, and potentially Brazil. The presence of Englishmen like Gerrard and Lampard, though, could help MLS attract more English stars in the coming years.

Wayne Rooney is Less Dangerous as it was in preliminary juncture

People suggest Wayne Rooney is not as dangerous an attacker as he was in the preliminary juncture of his career and he has lost bite, but, Rooney reckons it is not possible for a Footballer to stay the same forever.

Coming through the years, a Footballer takes a different approach.

As per England skipper, at a teen age, the personality of a Footballer is raw. His energy level is high, but, he lacks Football knowledge. However, as he ages, he matures, learns tricks and not just relies on his energy. He gets organized and a lot of thought process goes into what he does on the pitch and that way, he actually offers more to his side than what he would do earlier with all the rawness he had.

In the words of the forward turned attacking midfielder, “I often hear people try to compare Rooney of now to the teenager Rooney. You would surely find differences if you make that comparison because it’s obvious.”

LOUIS VAN GAAL: WAYNE ROONEY WAS FANTASTIC

Manchester United head coach, Louis Van Gaal said the embattled striker had a good game in the match he played as he returned to active football in a crucial time of the season.


The coach declared good job done as Manchester United enhanced their Premier League top four hopes with victory over Norwich, especially as Manchester city and Arsenal played a 2-2 draw.

Juan Mata punished Sebastien Bassong’s error as a 1-0 win at Carrow Road saw United move within one point of neighbours Manchester City. The Dutchman could yet guide United into the Champions League and FA Cup glory despite the fact that his job was threatened not too long ago.

LVG said:

“We did our job today. Fantastic, I think. When you see the second half, we deserved to win. We’re still in the race [for the top four].”

Van Gaal remains aggrieved at the failure to award United two penalties in the draw with champions Leicester a week ago, believing it cost United points to leave his side relying on the Gunners.

“Now we are dependent on Arsenal,” he said. This was before Arsenal did them the huge favour with the draw.

United were without Anthony Martial at Carrow Road after the striker felt a twinge in his knee in the warm up and Van Gaal was not prepared to risk the Frenchman. Continue reading LOUIS VAN GAAL: WAYNE ROONEY WAS FANTASTIC

Gary Lineker believes that Wayne Rooney isn’t crucial for England anymore

Former Tottenham Hotspur and England player Gary Lineker is certain that Wayne Rooney does not play such an important role for the English national football team anymore as there are many talented youngsters that are on the rise and are quickly turning into the main stars for England while Wayne Rooney’s impact with his national team has not been as big as it used to be.


Even with the absence of Wayne Rooney from England’s latest matches against Germany, Lithuania and Estonia, the English national side still managed to emerge victorious. Some of these games were just friendly encounters while the rest were European Championship qualification matches and England came out on top.

Gary Lineker stated that the head coach of England, Roy Hodgson has a number of alternatives that he can use instead of Wayne Rooney in the attacking department of the national team as the former Leicester City player said: ‘’I don’t want that to be taken in the wrong way, but I think there are all sorts of options up front for Roy now.’’ Continue reading Gary Lineker believes that Wayne Rooney isn’t crucial for England anymore
