Rooney approaches Best's Manchester United scoring record


Bookmark and Share

By Andrew Tuft

Tuesday 17 April 2012

Wayne Rooney is just one goal behind Manchester United legend George Best in the club’s all-time scoring record following his brace against Aston Villa in the Premier League on Sunday, the Daily Mail has reported.



Best is tied with Dennis Violett on 179 goals while the double Rooney plundered against Villa moved him to 178, leaving the England international within touching distance of the total achieved by the Northern Ireland winger between 1963 and 1974. Violett, meanwhile, played for United between 1953 and 1962 and survived the Munich air disaster of 1958.


Rooney has been at Old Trafford since 2004, following a £30m move from boyhood side Everton, and has made 360 appearances under Sir Alex Ferguson. If Rooney does overtake Best and Violett he will place fourth on the list headed up by Sir Bobby Charlton, who netted 249 goals in his 17 years and 758 appearances for the club.
