Thirteen years after leaving Everton, Wayne Rooney has re-signed at the Merseyside club for an undisclosed fee. The record goal scorer for Manchester United has scored 253 goals while playing a total of 559 for the Reds. During those 13 years, Rooney has won not less than five Premier League titles. He also won each of the FA Cup, the Europa League and the Champions League once after leaving Everton for a price tag of £27m back in 2004.
Rooney said that he felt great to be back after signing a two-year deal and admitted that his first game back for The Blues would be an emotional one. He also said that he can’t wait to meet the team, get on the training ground, and start playing on the pitch. Rooney’s signing came right after Everton let Belgian striker Romelu Lukaku go to United. Rooney will be wearing the number 10 shirt that was previously worn by none other than Lukaku.
Wayne Rooney has indeed been crucial for his return to the Toffees. It took him only 34 minutes to score his first goal while playing against Gor Mahia in their pre-season campaign. This was played at the Tanzania National Stadium in Dar es Salaam. They eventually won that game with a score of 2-1 with another goal for the Blues with a beautiful shot from Kieran Dowell. Rooney’s stunning kick was from 30 yards and his vintage signature strike left no chance to the goalkeeper of the Kenyan team.
His strike against Gor Mahia bears many similarities to the famous goal he once scored for Everton against Arsenal. This was scored when Rooney was only 16, and at that time, they played against a significantly stronger Arsenal. This can certainly be considered as a reminder that Rooney is still a gifted player and can be a key striker for the team of Ronald Koeman.

Although Rooney is unlikely to gain the physical qualities that was once dreaded by the opposition defence, his main role will be to support the team. He certainly seems comfortable when he was linked up with Ademola Lookman.
At the same time, Wayne Rooney has not given up hope at being part the World Cup next year. He believes that if he gets back in form, he may most probably grab the attention of the England Manager, Gareth Southgate.
