Revenge is a dish best served cold. Most people already know that. For Wayne Rooney, he cold be that cold dish of reality for his former club this weekend, as he goes for the 100th goal of his club career against former club, Everton.
Rooney’s burst of scoring has brought him to 99 goals in his club career and the England international is in the most prolific form of his professional life as he aims to make it a century against the club where it all started.
“It would be special to do it at Everton,” the Manchester United forward volunteered yesterday. “It’s always nice to get to 100 goals when you’re a striker and, if I could do it back at Everton, the club where I started, that would be really pleasing for me. That would be a really sweet moment.”
Rooney’s goal against Celtic on Tuesday means he has now scored nine times in his last seven games, his most impressive scoring run since registering his first professional goal, at the age of 16 years and 342 days, in a Carling Cup tie at Wrexham in October 2002. (Guradian)
I’m sure Rooney would love nothing more than to drop another nail into the Everton coffin this weekend. It would seem very fitting for him to get the winner and hit the century mark in the same match. And considering the current form he’s in, nobody would be surprised to see it happen.
What do you think United supporters: Is his 100th goal in the cards this weekend?
