Wayne Rooney's Stunning Goal That Broke Sir Bobby Charlton's Record

Rooney equalised in the fourth minute of stoppage time to break fellow England great Sir Bobby Charlton's United record of 249 goals. "He deserves his place in the history books". In his addition to his incredible achievements with United, he's also England's record goalscorer of course and his country's highest-capped outfield player.

The 31-year-old came off the bench to help his side rescue a point, meaning half of his 16 league appearances this season have come as a substitute. I was 35 when I retired. No, and I think with Wayne it is the same. He continues to show that he can contribute goals, assists and performances whenever called upon. He will raise the bar even further before he calls it a day.

'It is tough and I feel it is sometimes unfair, sometimes it is right, so the one thing, for me, that should happen - at this moment in time there is a huge gap between the media and the players.

But that doesn't mean he doesn't have a role to play at the club, and as a Manchester United fan, one hopes Rooney ignores the advances from China.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has said he will not stand in the way of captain Wayne Rooney should he express a desire to leave the club and join the Chinese Super League.

Wayne was the overwhelming choice of the FWA National Committee for this year's event, thus maintaining their tradition of presenting an award to men who have made an outstanding contribution to English football.

Rooney is now out on his own at the top, ahead of the likes of Sir Bobby Charlton, Denis Law and the genius of George Best.

"Rooney was so consumed in his post-match interview by the fact that Manchester United had salvaged a point in such hard circumstances that his record-breaking exploit had become secondary".

"It was a big game with two teams in the beginning trying to win", Mourinho told Sky Sports.

He has not favored a few players in crunch games this season and one such player who has now lost the trust of the manager is defender Luke Shaw.

A great goal by a great player and superb servant to the club. "When you sign for the club, you realise how important he (Charlton) is", the Englishman explained.
