Manchester United Players Pays Heartfelt Tribute To Wayne Rooney

The 31-year-old Englishman returned to boyhood club Everton, on Sunday, after a trophy-laden 13 years at Manchester United, in which Rooney eclipsed Sir Bobby Charlton’s record to become United’s all-time highest goal scorer.

Micheal Carrick, who played alongside Rooney for 11 years at Old Trafford, led the tribute with a warm good luck message on Instagram.

Carrick wrote: “Blew me away by how good he was from day 1. Outrageous. Had ups n downs but what a ride we’ve been on. Gonna miss him. Good luck Pal #Legend”.

Spanish international, Ander Herrera, who has been touted to take the captain’s armband Rooney left behind, also posted a heartfelt tribute to his former captain.

Former teammates, Rio Ferdinand and Gary Neville were not left out of the tribute bandwagon.

“All the best @WayneRooney and congratulations on a great United career. The best Striker I played with and saw at the club,” Neville said.
