“I’m not coming into a retirement home”: Rooney on why he left United for Everton

Date Posted,July 9, 2017

Fan view on Rooney return

When Wayne Rooney left for Manchester United on deadline day in August 2004, he broke the hearts of every Evertonian across the world.

On that sombre day, a little bit of all Toffees fans died, writes Joe Jennings, editor of the independent Everton fan site School of Science.

He was our boy wonder and a true Blue as his T-shirt had famously displayed. He had allowed us all to dream again after years of disillusionment and outright depression.

Rooney had offered Evertonians of all ages and generations something to latch on to.

A local lad, raised in our own academy, with astonishing ability.

More than anything or anyone, Wayne Rooney was the embodiment of all our hopes and dreams.

The street footballer that was destined for Goodison folklore. The lad who still ‘played out’ whilst playing for Everton and the Everton player with the Everton posters in his bedroom window.
