He scored in his 543rd appearance for the club, having played 215 games less than Sir Bobby. He had already surpassed Charlton’s goalscoring record for England two seasons ago.

Rooney who joined United from boyhood club Everton has been an impeccable servant to the club and despite numerous rumors of his exit, has remained at the Old Trafford outfit for more than a decade. We wish best of luck in breaking the record soon.
