The Impact Wayne Rooney Has Made At DC United Since Joining Is Remarkable

The Impact Wayne Rooney Has Made At DC United Since Joining Is Remarkable

Back in October 2016, Wayne Rooney didn't create a single chance from open play against Watford.

He didn't have a shot on target and only passed the ball forwards on six occasions throughout a disappointing 90-minute performance for Manchester United.

After that specific game, many cast doubts over his future in the game.

I mean, there was no doubt that Rooney had played a key role in United's success in years gone by, but his stature at Old Trafford was like a piece of glass - a solid exterior but people could see through his flaws.

Two years on from that match at Vicarage Road, some really did label Wayne Rooney's move to the MLS as the end of a trophy-laden career when he joined bottom of the league DC United.

But the 32-year-old has once again proved doubters wrong, making a remarkable impact at the Washington-based club.

Rooney has been pivotal in his team's journey to the play-off positions in the Eastern Conference, winning 10 of a possible 17 games while bagging nine goals in that time.

The former Manchester United forward once again helped his side to a 1-0 win against FC Dallas on Sunday evening, floating in a long-range free-kick to assist teammate Russell Canouse in the 86th minute.

This isn't the only assist Rooney has contributed to his side's success of late. The 32-year-old has seven assists in his 15 starts, leading DC up the table.

What a journey it has been.


Unbelievable numbers.
