After netting 200 for the Red Devils here’s some of the best.
Manchester United’s 4-2 victory over Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League on Tuesday night was marked with Wayne Rooney’s 199th and 200th goals for the club.
Since joining the Premier League champions in 2004, Rooney has gone onto become the highest scoring player under Sir Alex Ferguson and sits fourth in their all-time top-scorers.
So fanatix thought it’s about time we looked back at some of the best strikes from the last decade.
United 6-2 Fenerbahce – Hat-trick on debut for Rooney:
After a £30m move from Everton, the 18-year-old Rooney wasted little time in establishing the forward as a top-class talent with a hat-trick in the Champions League on the youngster’s debut.
United 2-1 Newcastle United – Superb volley against the Magpies:
The technique from the Englishman to level the match at Old Trafford against Newcastle showed just what Rooney was capable of.
United 3-0 Middlesbrough – Brace sinks Boro:
Rooney helped the Red Devils sink Middlesbrough in the FA Cup in 2005 with two stunning efforts.
The first was a well taken chip that looped over Mark Schwarzer, before topping that off with another great volley.
Barcelona 3-1 United – Rooney strike can’t save the Red Devils:
In 2011 Barcelona were at their peak and the Catalans were too irresistible in the Champions League final that year.
Despite Barca deservedly winning the match, Rooney was committed from the start and scored a well taken goal.
United 8-2 Arsenal – Rooney hat-trick helps sink fierce rivals:
On only the second match of the season the Gunners traveled to Old Trafford and were humbled by their great rivals in an 8-2 mauling.
Rooney netted a hat-trick – a feat the striker followed up the very next week with three more against Bolton Wanderers.
United 2-1 Manchester City – The striker’s greatest moment:
This is perhaps the defining moment for Rooney; an overhead kick against local rivals City to win the match and also help United win the league.
It’s the thing dreams are made of and the England international was living many people’s fantasy with this effort.
