Wayne Rooney became Manchester United’s greatest goalscorer of all time after netting for the 250th time in the 1-1 draw against Stoke City in Saturday’s Premier League encounter.
The 31-year-old scored in the 94th minute of the clash at the Britannia Stadium, lashing home a wonderful last-minute free-kick to level the scores for United.
It took him past Sir Bobby Charlton’s tally of 249, set between 1956 and 1973, with Rooney having reached the record in just 546 games for the club.
This is not the first time Rooney has usurped Charlton as a record holder, having also surpassed the World Cup winner’s England mark of 49 goals in 2015. He has gone on to take his total to 53 at international level and now holds the rare feat of being the greatest scorer for both his club and his country.
