Former Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney believes his goal scoring record at the club cannot be broken unless the club signs Cristiano Ronaldo or Messi.
Rooney left the club for Everton this summer after spending 13 years at the club as he was disclosed surplus to requirement by Jose Mourinho. But never breaking the club’s goal scoring record of the club legend Bobby Charlton.
Player No Longer Loyal
Wayne stated that the fact that players rarely spend a long time in the club means his record will stay safe unless a unique talent arrives at the club.
“With what we have today in modern football, it would be really hard for players to stay long at just one club. That’s why it would be difficult for my record to be broken.”
Great Memories At Manchester United
“It was great to leave such a legacy at Manchester United and I have a lot of fond memories at the club. My time there was a success and I wouldn’t change that for anything.”
“I loved every moment that I spent at the club but it was time for me to leave so I had to do it without hesitation. That’s why I came here.”
Rooney broke Boob Charlton’s record at the club in Manchester United’s game against Stoke City and is set to face the same team once again on Saturday.
“The goal that I scored in the game against Stoke City was the best part for me last season. It felt really great.”
“Although the team won a lot of trophies, it was really tough for me because I didn’t feel like I was part of the team.”
