Wayne Rooney is an English professional football manager and former player. Rooney joined the Everton youth team at the age of nine and made his professional debut for the club in 2002 at the age of 16.
He spent two seasons at the Merseyside club, before moving to Manchester United for £25.6 million in the 2004 summer transfer window where he won 16 trophies and became the only English player, alongside teammate Michael Carrick, to win the Premier League, FA Cup, UEFA Champions League, League Cup, UEFA Europa League, and FIFA Club World Cup. He spent much of his playing career as a forward. Widely considered to be one of the best players of his generation, Rooney is the record goalscorer for both the England national team and Manchester United. He scored 253 goals for United in all competitions to make him their top goalscorer of all time, with 183 Premier League goals being the second most scored by a player for any single club, behind Sergio Agüero (184 goals for Manchester City). Rooney's 208 Premier League goals make him the Premier League's second-top scorer of all time.
After Manchester United, he went back to Everton for a year, before crossing the pond to join DC United in 2018. After that, he would go to both play then manage Championship club Derby County.
