‘He’s back!!’: Twitter reaction as Wayne Rooney ends goal drought with hat-trick for Manchester United

Wayne Rooney‘s hat-trick for Manchester United in their UEFA Champions League second leg playoff victory against Club Brugge on Wednesday night provoked a huge reaction on social media.

The Red Devils captain gave the team a convincing 4-1 lead on aggregate as he calmly dinked the ball over Brugge stopper Sinan Bolat in the 20th minute following an excellent pass from Memphis Depay to break the deadlock in Belgium.

His second came just minutes into the second half as he rounded off a superb passing move to tap-in from close range and doubled United’s lead.

A few moments later he had his third and United’s sixth of the tie as he latched on to a pass from Juan Mata to fire the ball into the bottom corner and end his drought in superb style.
