England hero linked with stunning Goodison Park return.
Everton chairman Bill Kenwright has discussed the possibility of former hero Wayne Rooney returning to Goodison Park during an interview with the BBC.
Asked whether he felt there was a possibility of the 29 year old striker returning to his former club Kenwright responded;
‘Yes’ and then added
“He comes back to Goodison. He’s an Evertonian and his family are. He is welcome to come back,” Kenwright said.
“In all honesty, all I ever do is advise. I am not sidestepping the question. It is always going to be Roberto Martinez’s choice.”
Given the contentious nature of Rooney’s departure back in 2004 one does wonder whether the Old Trafford star would be welcome back with open arms by Everton fans, after all he comes in for a fair amount of abuse every time he lines-up against his former side.
Also it seems far more likely that were Rooney to leave Man United then it would almost certainly be to join a club that can offer him a lucrative deal, be that on the continent or indeed in a new market such as the MLS, rather than a romantic return to a side who couldn’t meet his massive wage demands.
