Man Utd Captain Rooney Pays Tribute To Late Howard Kendall

Wayne Rooney 18

It has been reported that Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney paid tribute to the late Howard Kendall after scoring in victory at Everton.

Rooney ended his 11-month wait for a Premier League away goal on Saturday in United’s 3-0 win at Everton.

But the announcement of Kendall’s death at the age of 69 before kick-off meant boyhood Everton fan Rooney was in an understandably sombre mood.

“It was very sad news,” the United captain said.

“I spoke to (Everton first-team coach) Duncan (Ferguson) this morning about it. It’s a sad day for Everton.

“I’m sure everyone at the club feels it, and I’d like to pass on my condolences to Howard’s family.”
