Wayne Rooney opens up after breaking Sir Bobby Charlton’s club record

by Tanveer Arayan


Wayne Rooney spoke out after becoming Manchester United’s all-time record goalscorer following his brilliant free-kick against Stoke City.

The Englishman levelled Sir Bobby Charlton’s club record goal tally against Reading and has now beat the record in style in the 1-1 draw.

He scored the free-kick in brilliant style in the closing minutes of the game and helped Jose Mourinho’s men claim a point from the clash as they had failed to find the back of net throughout the clash.

Speaking about his situation after the game, Rooney claimed there is still plenty to come from him at Old Trafford.

“My time at the club has been great, very successful, there’s a lot more to come,” he said after the game.

“A great honour and I am really proud. It is difficult, probably because of the result. 2 points dropped.

“It’s important to maintain the unbeaten run, it’s not nice to lose and it looked like we weren’t going to win, the point should be vital. There’s a long way to go and obviously other teams will drop points and United need to see where they can go.”

There aren’t many players that can score 250 goals at the same club, especially in modern football and at a club the size of Man United.

Rooney will go down as a legend in club history and his free-kick will always be memorable as United turned to him to find a moment of magic, and provide he did.
