Rooney's Playing Days

Wayne Rooney DerbySports Team History

First, he started with Liverpool Schoolboys and of course, Copplehouse Boys. These were the first teams in his league history and he was the youngest player there. Between 1996 and 2002 he played for Everton. Between 2002 and 2004 he played for the same team but in the senior class. He then played for Manchester United between 2004 and 2016 and he had 183 achievements and 393 assessments. He was the leading scorer during this period. Then he played for Everton again, between 2017 and 2018. He scored 23 goals during this time. Other places where he played are D.C. United and Derby County. Rooney scored a total of 237 scores during his career which is impressive. He was named captain and his league goals are the most impressive of them all. Also, he scored 53 goals for the national team. 

His rewards are stunning in the lack of a better word. He won PFA Players' Player of Year, Goal of the Season, Premier League Player of the Month, FWA Footballer of the Year, FIFA FIFPro World XI. As you can see these are all impressive achievements as many have compared him to Bobby Charlton. Both had many appearances and were competitive athletes. Both have a high number of career goals.

Wayne had a huge influence and success when playing for the national team. Of course, he played for England National team exclusively. The first time he played was in 2000-2001 and scored 2 goals. He also played 2001-2002 (7), 2002-2003 (0) and 2003-2018 (53). It’s no wonder why he is considered an icon in Great Britain and he is one of the most popular and best-known athletes there.

Future plans

He is currently the manager at Derby County. He must do miracles if he wants to remain the manager. As most of you know, Derby County has replaced 6 managers in recent years. Will Wayne be better than the other managers? We believe he will. First of all, he has needed expertise and knowledge to transform a team and make it better. He has the ability to see the area of issues in the club and make the necessary changes needed to resolve them.

A potential new owner Erik Alonso wanted to purchase this club due to one reason only. That reason is Wayne Rooney. He claimed that the current manager has a huge capability and can achieve so much for the team. With a higher budget and a few tweaks the team definitely has a bright future. Add the fact we talked about the plans and you can see that something nice is going to change and it will happen soon.

Wayne is definitely an icon and is known as one of the greatest athletes to play football. He is something special and this is the main reason for countless fans all over the world.
