Kai Rooney Scores Four Goals For Man Utd U12's Against Liverpool, He's Been On Fire This Season

Wayne Rooney's son Kai scored four goals for Manchester United U12's when they came up against rivals Liverpool at the weekend. Remember the name.

The 11-year-old forward, who signed a Premier League academy registration in December last year, is certainly following in his father's footsteps when it comes to finding the net.

Back in May, Rooney not only scored a hat-trick against Stoke City in a 6-3 win but he assisted three times.

Kai continues to shine in the club's youth system and, despite United falling to a 5-4 defeat to Liverpool at the weekend, the 11-year-old bagged four goals in an impressive individual performance.


He took to Instagram shortly after the full-time whistle to speak about his efforts.


Manchester United's all-time leading goalscorer Wayne Rooney said he was a "proud dad" after his son signed a deal at Old Trafford.

"He's been working hard, he obviously came over to the States with us to continue with his football," said Rooney in December.

"He went on trial with Manchester United and he's impressed the coaches. He signed his forms yesterday so I'm delighted for him.

"He did have other options, other clubs to go to. But he decided he wants to sign for Manchester United, so it was his decision and not mine."


Kai Rooney isn't the only famous name in United's academy. Cristiano Ronaldo's 11-year-old son is now part of the youth setup, where he plays alongside Nemanja Matic's son Filip and Wayne Rooney's eldest.

In fact, Cristiano Jr, who scored 58 times in just 28 matches during his time in Juventus' youth system, is better than his dad was at the age, according to Dolores Aveiro.

"Ronaldo has to come back here [to Sporting], for me he'd be here," Ronaldo's mother Aveiro said on the ADN de Leao podcast.


"He likes to watch Sporting's games. I've already told him: "Son, before I die I want to see you return to Sporting.

'"Let's see...", he said, but if it isn't [him], it's Cristianinho. At his age, he plays better than Ronaldo. At the time, Ronaldo didn't have a coach, but today Ronaldo is his son's teacher.
