(Image): Man Utd’s rising star hails Wayne Rooney’s haul

Manchester United winger Henrikh Mkhitaryan posted a tribute to his captain Wayne Rooney combined with what amounted to an apology for a poor performance against Stoke yesterday in the Premier League.

The former Borussia Dortmund forward congratulated Wayne Rooney on overtaking Bobby Charlton’s record of 250 goals for Manchester United with a vital free kick that saved his side a point in a poor display at home.

The Armenian also thanked fans for their birthday wishes to him.
