Man United fans celebrate Rooney’s landmark

Manchester United stormed their way into the fourth round of the FA Cup with a comfortable victory over Reading at Old Trafford, in a match where Wayne Rooney will claim the headlines.

Netting the second goal during United’s 4-0 victory against Jaap Stam’s Championship side, Rooney picked up the Man of the Match award for his performance and joined level with Bobby Charlton as United’s all-time leading goalscorer.

Having won everything he possibly could with Manchester United, Rooney is approaching the end of his career in Manchester but is now likely to make the record his own between now and the end of the season.

Rooney’s past few years may not have been the best, with question marks raised about whether he should depart Old Trafford, but there is no doubt England’s all-time leading scorer is a legend for both club and country.

Having surpassed Charlton’s England record last year, Rooney should now pinch another record off England’s World Cup winner before the season draws to a close.
