“I Am NOT A Natural Goalscorer”- Wayne Rooney

Posted By Bekee Wisdom | In News | Jul 10, 2022, 8:53 am

Wayne Rooney never considered himself a natural goalscorer, but Manchester United and England’s record-breaking striker believes he should have netted even more.

Having burst onto the scene with Everton so astonishingly at 16, the forward earned a big-money move to Old Trafford in 2004 and went on to score 253 goals in 559 appearances during a medal-laden spell there.

Rooney usurped Sir Bobby Charlton as United’s all-time top scorer, just as he did in the England record books having netted 53 across 120 caps – not that he really considers himself to be a sharpshooter.

“I’m going to be honest – and this might surprise you – but I’m not a natural goalscorer,” the 34-year-old told the Sunday Times.

“I was never a Gary Lineker or a Ruud van Nistelrooy; I never looked at myself that way.

“I hold the goal records for Manchester United and England and am very proud about that – yet there have been better No 9s than me.

“How did I become a record-breaker if I wasn’t a natural scorer? Time. I played for United for 13 years, England for 15 years. I had time to break those records – and looking back I should have scored more.”
