Manchester United skipper Wayne Rooney is set to play in his testimonial when the Red Devils take on Everton on Wednesday.
The player has been with Old Trafford for 12 years and wants his testimonial to be against his boyhood club. The 30 year old Three Lions captain recently revealed that hid best moment as a United player was his debut in the UEFA Champions League where he scored an hat trick.
The 30 year old has enjoyed a successful career winning the UEFA Champions League, English Premier League titles, the FA Cup and almost anything in club football. He has not enjoyed similar fate in the international scene but has had a decent career as a whole.
Aside the debut game which he said he would never forget, Rooney said he would go with the 4-3 win against Manchester City. It was former Manchester and Newcastle United forward Michael Owen that scored the winner in stoppage time. He said the game was very competitive and “the atmosphere was unbelievable.”
On his third choice, he said he would pick out the game against AC Milan in 2007. It was the semi final which ended in a 3-2 scoreline courtesy of Rooney’ brace. They didn’t win the trophy that year but definitely won the UEFA Champions League under Sir Alex Ferguson in 2008 where they defeated Chelsea in a penalty shootout in Moscow, Russia.
Rooney’s career in gradually reaching his final stages as his form has dropped but he is still the one to lead Manchester United this season as coach Jose Mourinho tries to return the club to winning ways. Mourinho is the one that will coach the team at the testimonial and the game would serve as the first on home soil ahead of the forthcoming season.
