I think it’s fair to say that there is little love lost between the Toffees and their former hero Wayne Rooney. He left in acrimonious circumstances. Clearly his claim that ‘Once a blue, always a Blue’ referred in some odd way to a Man United third strip. Now it appears that Everton’s ‘luvvie’ Chairman and David Moyes believe that the England international may one day return to L4.
Everton chairman Bill Kenwright told the Mail on Sunday: “David Moyes has always said to me: ‘One day Wayne Rooney will come back to Everton.’ Why not? Those four or five days when I knew he wanted to go were without doubt the worst few days of my football life.”
Given all that has happened since the local lad left Merseyside and the constant heckling he gets every time he returns to his former stamping ground would it be fair to say that Toffee fans wouldn’t welcome him back?
