Wayne Rooney talks about his reasoning behind leaving United

Wayne Rooney´s transfer to Everton was one of the transactions that received most attention during the summer transfer window of 2017.

Considering that the English attacker is a high-profile player who is regularly in the spotlight of the media, it does not come as much of a surprise to find out why this move from Manchester United over to Everton is being talked about on such a consistent basis throughout different media outlets.

During the 13 year long stay that Rooney enjoyed in Old Trafford, he made over 350 appearances. In the opening seasons that he spent as a Manchester United player, his impact was felt as he scored 11 goals in his debut season. 11 goals might not sound like a lot but in that specific season, he was the top goal-scorer of the club, above everyone else.


Wayne Rooney is facing a tough time as he has to make key important decisions that would affect his family, career path, legendary status and several other people.

His huge pay packet is hurting Manchester United considering that he never gets to start games.

His boyhood club Everton cannot even come close to Rooney’s £250,000 weekly wages demand. As a player that is not sure to get a first team call-up, even £100,000 would be difficult to cough out. Not many Premier League sides can pay even half of what United pay for Rooney with his current form and contributions to the team.

The record scorer for the club would likely not consider staying away from his family or moving them to China or America even if there were offers.


Soccer Pundit Martin Keown opines that Swede striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic could turn a fallen giant next year.

The former Barcelona, AC Milan and PSG striker scored a last gasp penalty as Man United forced a draw at Old Trafford against Everton.

United have relied solely on the striker for goals this season. While he has netted 27 times already, the club has struggled without him. Keown insists that Ibrahimovic would struggle to deliver the goods next year if the player decides to continue.

“It was very predictable. You look at Ibrahimovic, he’s 35 and he looked it tonight [against Everton]. He’s been suspended for the last couple of games and he didn’t pick up to the pace tonight. United have to go out and sign a striker in the summer,” the former Arsenal defender added.

Tony Cottee refuses to criticize Jose Mourinho

Tony Cottee refuses to criticize Jose Mourinho for making a comment on Chelsea’s brand of Football as he reckons it is just gamesmanship shown by the Portuguese coach and if he is able to put any kind of influence on Antonio Conte through his words, it would be a success for him.

Mourinho had recently tried to give the impression that he didn’t rate Chelsea that much as a team because of their reluctance to come on the attack.

The Red Devils’ boss was very manipulative with his comment though and actually complimented his former side by labelling them good, but, one could easily read between his words and understand that he was actually trying to mock Conte & Co there.

Rooney will continue serving as captain of England and Manchester United

Wayne Rooney is a player that in the past few weeks has been in the spotlight more than usual as the Manchester United player was spotted at The Grove hotel in Hertfordshire late at night drinking and Rooney even made an unscheduled appearance at a wedding reception.

Pictures were leaked where Rooney was seen doing inappropriate things with the wedding guests where he was not even believed to be invited to. All of this occurred during an international break at the team hotel of England which was The Grove hotel.

The representatives of Wayne Rooney responded to all of these recent issues as they released a statement which read:
