Sir Bobby Charlton visits Man Utd dressing room to congratulate Rooney

Manchester United legend Bobby Charlton came to the players’ dressing room to congratulate Wayne Rooney on his record-breaking 250th goal for the club after today’s game against Stoke.

The England captain scored in stoppage time to help United to a 1-1 draw, and in the process overtook Charlton as United’s all-time leading goalscorer.

Charlton’s record had stood for over 40 years, but Rooney has now firmly cemented his place as one of United’s best-ever players with this incredible feat.

Having already received congratulations from his old manager Sir Alex Ferguson, Rooney also tweeted a picture of himself and Charlton speaking after today’s game.

Rooney said: ‘Huge honour to become leading goalscorer for Man Utd. Thanks to Sir Bobby for his kind words after the game.’

Slightly overshadowed today was also the fact that Rooney moved ahead of Alan Shearer on most away goals in Premier League history.
