Everton to Manchester United and back – the highlights of Wayne Rooney

Wayne Rooney joined Manchester United from Everton back in 2004 and thirteen years later he made his return to Goodison Park from Old Trafford, having racked up sixteen titles during his Manchester United career.

Following his transfer in August 2004 he has managed to win five Premier League titles with United as you can see in our infographic, which happens to be five times more than Arsenal during that time and you wouldn’t bet on Arsenal to win the league this season.

His move back to Everton is unlikely to result in as many trophies being won, but he has the potential to use his experience to help the club progress to the next level under manager Ronald Koeman, something that both David Moyes and Roberto Martinez failed to do during their time as manager.

His career has seen many highs and lows, with the lows including three metatarsal injuries that occurred in the early part of his career, two of which were while at Manchester United.

The injuries perhaps prevented him from becoming as prolific as he initially seemed he would be. He did manage to break the goal scoring record for both England and Manchester United, though he only ever managed to score over 25 goals twice, back in the 2009/10 and 2011/12 seasons.
