WAYNE ROONEY MATCHES SIR BOBBY CHARLTON’S MANCHESTER UNITED RECORD
Manchester United skipper Wayne Rooney has reached the club highest scoring record of 249 goals set by Sir Bobby Charlton after scoring against Reading in the FA Cup on Saturday night. The 31 year old opened the scoring for his club just seven minutes after the kickoff to draw level with club legend Charlton. Manchester United went on to win the game 4-0 as Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford found the target afterwards. Wayne Rooney reached the milestone in 543 matches, 215 matches earlier than the English great. Rooney, who joined Manchester United from Everton in 2004, also replaced Charlton as England’s all time highest goal-scorer two seasons ago when he scored against Switzerland in a Euro 2016 qualifier tie.
