Video Showing 'Red Legend Wayne Rooney' At Manchester United Reminds You Just How Good He Was
A YouTube video showing Wayne Rooney in his prime at Manchester United has proven what a great player he was.
Rooney joined United from Everton in 2004 and went on to win every trophy possible, as well as become their all-time top goalscorer.
YouTube user VR Productions complied the six minute video and titled it 'Red Legend' and it shows 'Wazza' at the peak of his powers.
Rooney burst onto the scene as a teenager at Everton before United signed him for £25 million.
Many raised their eyebrows at that price for a teenager, but Rooney soon eradicated those doubts.
He scored a hat-trick on his debut against Fenerbahce in the Champions League and never looked back.
What followed were 13 trophy laden years which featured five Premier League titles as well as a Champions League victory, plus multiple domestic cups.
The video also features legendary moments including his bicycle kick winner against Manchester City, one of the Premier League's greatest goals.
He left United in 2017 to re-sign with Everton after winning the Europa League.
The 34-year-old is now at Derby County in the Championship following a stint with D.C. United in the MLS.

Rooney's prime years arguably came between 2007 and 2009 when playing alongside Cristiano Ronaldo in attack at Old Trafford.
The duo were a perfect match and Carlos Tevez joining in 2008 formed one of the world's deadliest attacking trios.
It was in this time 'The Red Devils' won three Premier League's in a row as well as securing Champions League glory.
Former teammate Phil Jones told MUTV that he feels Rooney'a accomplishments in his 13 year stint with United are underrated.
"I think his achievements were overshadowed and under-appreciated a bit," he stated per Goal.
"I don't think he got the recognition he should have got considering he was England's record goalscorer, all the goals he scored for United, and the trophies he won.
"He was unbelievable and when he was doing this for England and United people still questioned him. But I think now people really do appreciate what he did for United and football."
It's safe to say the former England international is a bonafide Manchester United legend.
