Wayne Rooney equals Bobby Charlton's Manchester United goal record

Wayne Rooney equals Bobby Charlton's Manchester United goal record

Jose Mourinho hailed his much-changed Manchester United for taking care of business in the FA Cup as Wayne Rooney's landmark 249th goal stretched the holders' unbeaten run to eight games.

Rooney has now hit out at the extensive coverage given to the incident within the United Kingdom media, accusing some outlets of prioritising the incident over his latest goalscoring landmark.

Considering his comments after the game, however, maybe Rooney isn't too bothered about keeping the shirt that saw him draw level with Sir Bobby because he doesn't think it'll be too long before he is out at the top of the record books on his own.

Two years later, Rooney was asking to leave the club again, but this time it was Ferguson who confirmed it.

"If you look back at all the games he has played and all the goals he has scored for the club, it is unbelievable and, for young players coming up and any striker growing up, then it is awesome for them to be able to watch him".

"This club is a huge part of my life, and I'm honoured to be up there alongside Sir Bobby", said Rooney following the 4-0 win.

He added: "You want to do records [sic] in front of your home fans. To do it at a massive club like Manchester United, I'm hugely honored".

But the 22-year-old later Tweeted a picture of Rooney's No 10 shirt with the caption: "To clear up I asked to exchange shirts in the tunnel due to a disappointing day!"

Daley Blind hailed Manchester United duo Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial as "great players" following the emphatic FA Cup win over Reading. The best day will arrive.

Even though he returned and scored what is considered the best goal ever seen in the Premier League, an audacious bicycle kick against Man City, it seemed like the old love was gone. "As both a professional and a person, he is a real credit to our club and I am very pleased he has agreed to this new deal".

Speaking about Rooney at his postmatch news conference, Mourinho said: "It is not the best day for him".

To even get mentioned in the same breath as Sir Bobby Charlton, who for so many people is a great for what he did with England and Manchester United, is an achievement.

The young Rashford, playing as the lone striker in place of Ibrahimovic missed a host of chances in the first-half, but made amends with a brace in the second period to ensure Jaap Staam's return to Old Trafford was an unhappy one.

In a battle between two managers named by relegation-threatened Premier League clubs this week, Marco Silva began his tenure at bottom side Hull City with a 2-0 victory over Swansea City for whom Paul Clement picked the side for the first time.
