Incredible Compilation Proves Wayne Rooney Is The Ultimate 'Streets Will Never Forget' Player

Incredible Compilation Proves Wayne Rooney Is The Ultimate 'Streets Will Never Forget' Player

An incredible video of Wayne Rooney's most underrated moments at Manchester United has emerged - proving he is the ultimate 'streets will never forget' player.

Rooney won every trophy with the club in his 13-year stint at Old Trafford and also broke the club's goalscoring record.

But it's often forgotten just how good he was for the Red Devils and how important he was during their dominant period in the mid-2000's.

@HXNZ99 has created the ultimate highlight reel of 'Wazza' moments you may have forgotten about from the 2009/2010 season.

United didn't win the league that season but Rooney still took home the PFA Player of the Year award for his own accomplishments.

He scored 26 goals in 32 Premier League games as Sir Alex Ferguson's side lost the title to Chelsea.

Rooney made his name as a lethal striker but had begun to develop into a versatile all-rounder as his career progressed.

His range of passing as well as close control allowed him to play anywhere in attack and flourish, no matter who his teammates were.

Fans have reacted to the video and they think Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would love a player like him in the current United squad.

Jose Mourinho and David Beckham also feature and pay tribute to the former England man, Mourinho saying he'd have loved to sign him in his prime and Beckham calling him "one of, if not the best players around right now."

Rooney had to perform that season as the club had lost Cristiano Ronaldo and Carlos Tevez the summer prior.

He told United Review that Ronaldo and Tevez's departures meant the goalscoring responsibility fell on his shoulders.

"Losing those two took a lot of goals away from the team," Rooney explained.

"I knew I'd have to score. We just knew that we had to work hard and find a new way of playing.

"This has been the best goalscoring period of my career," he continued. "You just feel like every time you run out on the pitch, or every time you've got the ball near goal, you're going to score. It's a feeling every striker strives for."

The 34-year-old is now at Derby County in the Championship following a stint with D.C. United in the MLS.
