No doubt, it will be a bittersweet moment for Wayne Rooney as he welcomes Manchester United to Goodison Park for this evening’s late kick-off.
Having been plucked from Everton at the tender age of 18 by Sir Alex Ferguson, the former England captain went on to repay every penny of the £25.6m fee The Red Devils paid for him.
Rooney hit 253 goals for the Old Trafford outfit in his time there, becoming United’s record goalscorer ahead of the great Bobby Charlton in the process. You’d think when he left the club in the summer to return to his beloved Everton that his career would go into wind-down mode, but the former England captain is having none of it.
Despite the early season woes The Toffees endured, Rooney has already got into double figures this season, with 10 Premier League goals to his name and our punters will be hoping he finds another one against his old club today.
