Wayne Rooney’s illustrious career will continue back in England when he leaves DC United and joins Derby County in a player-coach capacity in January.
Rooney has been a key man for DC in just over a year in MLS so far, but news of a return home with Derby in the Championship quickly developed before the move was announced on Tuesday.
The 33-year-old burst onto the scene as a teenager with boyhood club Everton before going on to become Manchester United’s all-time leading scorer, managing 253 goals in 559 appearances in all competitions.
His 13-year stay at United – which included winning the Premier League, Champions League and both domestic cups – ended in 2017 when he returned to Goodison Park, giving him the opportunity to play again for the team where it all began, before moving on to become the latest big-name star in MLS.
From an unforgettable first league hit to a long-range lob via a moment of Manchester derby magic, we take a look back at Rooney’s top 10 goals from his club career.
