Wayne Rooney has confirmed his re-signing for Everton after 13 years of playing for Manchester United. Former MU captain rejoined on a free transfer on Sunday. Rooney was in the pitch 559 times and scored 253 goals for Reds.
He joined to Manchester for £27m in 2004. Since then he has won five Premier Leagues, Champions League, Europa League and FA Cup. Rooney said that he is delightful to join Everton and his first game for the new squad will be very emotional.
Everton offered two-years-contract. Still, there are many questions whether the Rooney’s deal will work out for the Toffees. He didn’t have many good games lately and his shape also under the question. But Ronald Koeman is sure that Rooney can manage it and they really need his ambitions.
“Wayne has shown me ambitions and winning mentality. That’s exactly what we need now. He is the one who knows how to win the titles and me really happy to see Wayne alongside. He’s only 31 and I don’t have any doubts about him”, told Everton’s chief in an interview.
Former Manchester United player made an official statement in turn, “I went to Manchester United 13 years ago with intentions to win trophies. It was a very successful period for the squad and I’m fortunate to be part of this. Now I’m looking forward to playing for Everton because Ronald Koeman builds a team that can with some trophies”.
So Rooney leaves for good, but he will be remembered as a club legend, who scored more goals than anyone and was a captain of one of the most successful clubs in the world.
