Sir Bobby Charlton : Rooney Destined For Greatness

Manchester United legend Sir Bobby Charlton believes Wayne Rooney is destined to write himself into the record books.

Manchester United director Charlton believes that Rooney will beat his record of 49 goals for England and take South Africa by storm. Rooney has to-date scored 25 times in 58 international appearances.

“That would give me a great deal of pleasure,” said Charlton, who is also United’s all-time leading scorer with 249 goals.

Charlton added that : “He is right at the peak of his skill and, although there’ll be a lot of hype around him at the World Cup, I think he’ll perform as well as anyone there.”
