Wayne Rooney rejoins Everton
The Manchester United striker, Wayne Rooney, has rejoined Everton on a free transfer, after 13 years at Old Trafford. He scored 253 goals in 559 matches for United. He helped them gain five Premier League titles and each one of the Europa League, FA Cup, and Champions League after leaving Everton and joining United for £27m.
This comes after the Everton striker Romelu Lukaku decided to join United on a £75m deal.
Everton’s coach, Ronald Koeman, said that he will be pleased to see the all-time England scorer back at the club he played previously for.
However what made Rooney come to this? He appeared in only 25 league games, which are the fewest he performed in a season. He made 8 goals in all competitions, which were similarly the fewest from his career.
He was often left as an unused substitute, including the final of the EFL Cup where United beat Southampton. In the final of the Europa League, he appeared only for a few moments at the end of the match, as they beat Ajax.
Rooney has become a legend finishing as a top scorer for United five times. He has become one of the most prominent British players of the current generation.
By the age of nine, he joined Everton and managed to impress many as he scored 114 goals in 29 games during his performances for the under-10 and under-11 competitions.
He made his debut in 2002 scoring his first goal in a game against Arsenal.
Now he is back where he started from and there might still follow numerous impressive performances, which could push Everton to the top in the next season.
