The now 36-year-old forward has established himself as the all-time best goal scorer for both his club, Manchester United, and his country, England.
In October, then-Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson announced that Rooney would be leaving the club. Rooney's departure was effective immediately. However, reports from several sources suggested that this was not the reason for Rooney's benching; rather, the previous manager decided to do so.
In August of 2017, Wayne Rooney announced his retirement from his country's national team. He finished his career with 53 goals scored in 119 matches. Following his appointment as manager of the Derby County squad in January 2021, the former star of Manchester United announced his retirement from playing football. In the beginning, he served as the caretaker of the English Football League championship club.
The 36-year-old player retired as Manchester United's all-time leading scorer and England's all-time leading scorer overall. While playing for Manchester United, Wayne Rooney made a total of 559 games and scored 253 goals while also winning up to five Premier League titles.
When compared to other people in his position, Wayne Rooney has enjoyed one of the healthiest and longest-lasting marriages. He has not separated from his wife, Coleen Rooney, with whom he has raised four of their children. After retiring from professional soccer, Wayne Rooney moved back to his native England and is now managing a soccer team there.
It is true that he is a living legend, and the things that he accomplished will never be forgotten.
