The New King of Old Trafford

The outstanding Mancunian writer Anthony Burgess once said that life is a wretched gray Saturday, but it has to be lived through. With this in mind, it ‘s most stimulating to observe that Wayne Rooney still tries to add a bit of colour to life every now and then.

When Wayne Rooney had a serious go against the Milan defence earlier this season, Silvio Berlusconi was so baffled he switched off his tv set in angriness. Putting the ball into the net in almost every single game, Rooney is only a few goals behind the amount the Portugese international made do two seasons ago. Yet, Rooney has on several occasions upheld that assisting Manchester United to a successful campaign is more essential than emulating Ronaldo’s goal tally.

Apparently, Wayne Rooney has made a commitment to present goals at a rate most of his rivals cannot aim to emulate. A powerful and exquisite player, his ability to score goals is unrivalled on the international soccer scene at the very moment. Wayne Rooney has been in tremendous form of late taking his goal tally to 32 and he has even been tipped to break the 40 goal mark as he closes on the 42 goal record achieved by Cristiano Ronaldo back in 2008.

Reportedly, Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has been quite amazed by Rooney as he is about to blast Manchester United to a fourth successive Premier League title. Both at home and abroad, Wayne Rooney has proved why Real Madrid are determined to tie him to former team mate Cristiano Ronaldo. Still, it’s difficult to believe that Real Madrid think Manchester United a feeder club as anyone setting up such an idea must be regarded as a complete imbecile. Besides, the inform striker looks to be sort of indifferent to the outlook of joining Ronaldo. Hopefully, Wayne Rooney will decide to follow the examples of long serving Old Trafford players like Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes and Gary Neville.

Regarded as one of the hottest players in the world, Wayne Rooney has been firmly in the public eye since breaking into the England side at the age of 17. Manchester United signed him for some �30 million soon after the 2004 European Championships and he has since helped the club to three straight league titles. During his stay at Old Trafford, Rooney has no doubt proved that he can score against quality opposition and his talents are evident to anyone who has seen him play.

Wayne Rooney can match any player in the top flight for tempo as well as possessing an incredible ball keeping capability beyond the rational imaging of most players. With scarcely two years left on his present deal, he is most likely to sign a new contract with United in the near future. Just to reinforce the thought that scoring goals is absolutely vital in soccer, we should remember that any crusade will become a failure without a dependable marksman.
