Wayne Rooney Makes Stun­ning Re­turn to Ever­ton from Manch­ester United

The Day After - - SNIPPETS SPORTS -

Eng­land and Manch­ester United’s record goalscorer Wayne Rooney com­pleted a move back to his first club Ever­ton last fort­night, the player told the Press As­so­ci­a­tion in a state­ment. The 31-year-old — who had be­come a pe­riph­eral fig­ure un­der Jose Mour­inho last sea­son — signed a two year con­tract with Ever­ton bring­ing the cur­tain down on 13 tro­phy-laden years at Manch­ester United.

Rooney — whose move comes the day after United an­nounced they had agreed terms with Ever­ton over buy­ing their lead­ing scorer Romelu Lukaku — will hope the move also re­vives his in­ter­na­tional ca­reer which also stalled last sea­son. “It is some time since I said that the only Premier League club I would play for other than Manch­ester United was Ever­ton, so I am de­lighted that the move has hap­pened,” he said in a state­ment to The Press As­so­ci­a­tion.
