Like Father, like Son

For years, Wayne Rooney made a habit of scoring goals, occupying a position as one of the best forwards in world football and a scorer of brilliant goals.

The forward, who remains England’s record goalscorer with 53, netted 253 goals and provided 146 assists in 559 games for the Red Devils.

This was enough to write him into their history books as their record scorer too, although he left the club at just 32 years old after 12 seasons with the Red half of Manchester.

Now, it seems as though his son could be set to follow in his dad’s gigantic footsteps, despite just being 11 years old.

Playing for Manchester United’s U12s in a crunch game with club rivals Liverpool, Kai Rooney (just 11) ended on the losing side of a nine goal thriller at youth level.

However, the forward was able to net all four of his side’s goals, as he proudly displayed on his instagram story.

Of course, much will be expected of anyone bearing the Rooney name, especially if he continues to set his own bar as high as he did yesterday.

However, should he continue to deliver (as an 11 year old!) for his dad’s old side, he will be a firm favourite of the Manchester United faithful, who love nothing more than homegrown talent leading the way for the Red Devils.

Of course, this is all incredibly premature, but it does seem as though Wayne Rooney is almost as good a coach as he was a player.
