ROONEY ANNOUNCES RETIREMENT FROM FOOTBALL

Wayne Mark Rooney (born 24 October 1985) is an English professional football manager and former player. He spent much of his playing career as a forward while also been used in various midfield roles. Widely considered to be one of the best players of his generation, Rooney is the record goalscorer for both the English National team and Manchester United.

Rooney joined the Everton youth team at the age of 9 and made his professional debut for the club in 2002 at the age of 16.

He spent two seasons at the Merseyside club, before moving to Manchester United for £25.6 million in the 2004 summer transfer window where he won 16 trophies and became the only English player, alongside teammate Michael Carrick, to win the Premier League, FA Cup, UEFA Champions League, League Cup, UEFA Europa League, and FIFA Club World Cup.

He later had stints with boyhood club Everton, D.C. United in the MLS and later Derby County.

Rooney won the PFA Players' Player of the Year in the 2009/10 season and was voted Premier League player of the month, five times.

Everything that have a beginning must have an end. Either you retire willingly or you retire without will.
It's just a matter of time.

The tyrant who innocent pigeons embarrassed today will also retire someday or be forced to retire by nature.
One day Nigerians will smile and dance the dance of freedom.
