Video: Wayne Rooney Breaks Sir Bobby Charlton’s Record in Most Wayne Rooney Way

Wayne Rooney rolled back the years to break Sir Bobby Charlton‘s record and become Manchester United‘s all-time leading goalscorer.

The English striker hasn’t been the most prolific this season, scoring just five goals in all competitions.

But it was still enough to see him move alongside Charlton’s record of scoring 249 goals for the Old Trafford.

Rooney has been on that number since netting in United’s 4-0 FA Cup win over Reading on January 7th – and he’s finally got the goal to move out on his own.

And it was a stunning strike that Rooney deserves for a career that has been filled with unbelievable goals.

Standing over a free kick as United trailed Stoke 1-0 in injury time, Rooney brilliantly curled the ball into the top corner to grab a 1-1 draw for his side and the record:

Forget tap-ins or headers, that’s the sort of goal Rooney had to score to break Charlton’s record.

So it’s now 250 goals for United – and you’d have to expect him to add to that number and go on to set himself apart as the best goalscorer in the club’s illustrious history.
