Rooney ready for ‘emo­tional’ Euro­pean de­but with Ever­ton

Kuwait Times - - SPORTS -

Wayne Rooney says he can’t wait to ful­fil his child­hood dream of play­ing for Ever­ton in Europe in to­day’s Europa League tie against MFK Ru­zomberok. Rooney won the Cham­pi­ons League and Europa League dur­ing his tro­phy-filled spell with Manch­ester United, but the visit of Slo­vakian side Ru­zomberok to Good­i­son Park will still rank as one of the more mem­o­rable mo­ments of the 31-year-old’s glit­ter­ing ca­reer. Rooney, who left Ever­ton to join United in 2004, is a life-long fan of the Mersey­side club and his move back to Good­i­son Park ear­lier in the close-sea­son will al­low him to live out his am­bi­tion of wear­ing the Tof­fees’ blue shirt in con­ti­nen­tal com­pe­ti­tion. It may only be a Europa League third-round qual­i­fier, but Rooney is rel­ish­ing his first com­pet­i­tive home match as an Ever­ton player for 13 years. — AFP
