It has been reported that Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney is delighted with his latest goals record.
Speaking with the United Review, the skipper discusses how it feels to be level with Andy Cole in the list of all-time Barclays Premier League goalscorers.
“He was a great striker over the years for Newcastle and for United, which I think was the best time of his career,” Rooney says. “He was a natural goalscorer, he was great to watch and he was a big player for United.
“It’s great to be alongside him now. I am still quite a long way off Alan Shearer; he has 260 goals and that one may be difficult to reach, but I am pleased to be second with Andy.”
