Manchester United boss expects Toffees old boy to punish former club

Manchester United manager David Moyes is hopeful that striker Wayne Rooney can return to haunt former club Everton today, as reported by the Daily Mirror.

Rooney has been back to Goodison Park on numerous occasions with United since leaving Merseyside, scoring a kissing the Red Devils badge in the process.

The England man will very much be the villain of the piece again today, however Moyes and new recruit Marouane Fellaini are also going back to Goodison for the first time.

Moyes is hoping that Rooney can find his top form going into the final few games of the season and then the World Cup.

“I have never been back to ­Goodison with Wayne, but I know it was something that concerned Sir Alex at times,” said the United boss.

“But Wayne is a different player now. He’s got that maturity.

“He’s just signed a new contract, he is due to go to the World Cup and, if ever there was a player ready to play in any game in any stadium, then it would be Wayne Rooney.

“I remember Wayne going back to Goodison and scoring against us, so he has gone back and done well at times. But now he is about to be one of England’s leading players in the World Cup and so I’ll be expecting him to stand up and be seen at Goodison.”
