Wayne Rooney- The dark knight
Manchester United has the history of producing great players and legends. One among them is the present old trafford superstar Wayne Rooney. As Manchester united lost to real madrid at home due to the controversial red card, many red devils faithful were also surprised by the exclusion of wayne rooney for a match of such a magnitude.It seems Rooney has gone out of favour with alex ferguson. With the arrival of Robin van persie, rooney’s stardom seems to have diminished at old trafford. But rooney’s contribution to the team should not be questioned. he has been the engine for the team for years as he has consistently performed for the red devils over the years and he deserves special applause. He has bailed out the team from many losing positions and converted them into unlikely wins. he has been the driving force for united over the years.From his early days, he has always lightened up old trafford with his sparkling performances with his power, stamina, finishing and technique. He has als been the finest english striker of his generation.His consistent and amazing performances has led him to win many major individual and team honours. When rooney was in the top of his game, an injury in a match against bayern munich in 2010 changed eveything. When he was back from injury, he could never get full match fitness and form for a long time. This frustrated period led him to ask for a transfer request and it shocked the whole of manchester united and its fans. Just when it looked that it was the end of rooney’s time at manchester united, wayne rooney signed a very lucrative offer to extend his contract to 5 years much to the relief of the red devils fan base. But this incident seems to have deteriorate his relationship with alex ferguson forever. Although rooney remained a fan favourite, his fitness and weight were always questioned. But no one can question his commitment to manchester united as he gives his all in every matches. His performance and goals has always been top class at united. He is already a great at united. A legend. Lets hope the rumour of him leaving Manchester united after being unhappy to be dropped for the real madrid match never becomes true. We would always like to hear the commentator shout “ROONEEEEEEEY” at old trafford as he scores numerous goals past opponents.
