Wayne Mark Rooney is my all-time favourite Manchester United player ever. Even when Cristiano Ronaldo was at United Rooney was my favourite of the two but this is story for another day.
Rooney completed his move to Manchester United at the end of August 2004 but due to injury he didnt make his debut until this day (September 28) that year. It was a game against Fenerbache. The game ended 6:1 in favour of United. Rooney scored a hat trick in this tie but that didn’t surprise me, I mean he’s a striker he was bought to score goals.
My surprise was how the other lads allowed him to play a free-kick. Anyway, he scored. Rooney’s 3 goals on this day in 2004 ensured the Red Devils beat Fenerbache 6:1 in a Champions League tie.
This game certainly is my favourite of any debutant.
