Video Showing 'The Real Wayne Rooney' At Manchester United Sums Him Up

A Twitter video showing 'the real Wayne Rooney' at Manchester United has gone viral and it shows what a great player he was.

Rooney joined United from Everton in 2004 and went on to win every trophy possible with the club, as well as becoming their all-time top goalscorer.

Twitter user @Rooney_esque complied the nine minute video and titled it 'The Story', while @ManUnitedZone_ captioned it 'Kids today never experienced the real Wayne Rooney.'

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.
