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.

"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."
