Manchester United have paid tribute to legend Wayne Rooney by posting an emotional video on twitter. Wayne Rooney is heading to MLS after 16 seasons in the Premier League.
Rooney has signed a three-year-and-a-half-year deal with DC United, a move which has been on the cards since the closing stages of last season. The former England captain returned to boyhood club Everton for the 2017-18 campaign, but undoubtedly enjoyed the most successful spell of his career at Old Trafford. During his time with the Red Devils, Rooney became United’s all-time record goalscorer, eventually leaving with 253 in 559 appearances before exiting in July 2017 having fallen out of favour under Jose Mourinho.
Following a United a career that yielded five Premier League titles, three League Cups, an FA Cup medal and a Champions League success, Rooney will forever be entrenched in the club’s history.
United sent their former star a good luck message ahead of his venture Stateside, labelling Rooney a “true legend”.
Isn’t that just lovely?
