Wayne Rooney & Man United
Last weekend Wayne Rooney played his first match at Man United since his summer move back to Everton.
Rooney was a key protagonist during last Sunday’s Premier League match.
The Everton star was played at centre-forward at Old Trafford. And Rooney had a couple of chances to find the target, but he dragged a shot wide in teh first half, while David De Gea saved from point-blank range in the second period.
Rooney was eventually subbed out the game towards the end of the second half, at which point the floodgates opened.
Man United were leading 1-0 when Rooney exited the pitch. The game finished with Everton losing 4-0.

Everton star banned
On Monday, Rooney was banned from riving for the next two years.
That’s after the Everton striker pleaded guilty to a drink-driving charge.
While Rooney’s personal life has been headlines with respect to his off-field activities, the footballer seems to be getting on with things with respect to his day job at Everton.
Everton, however, did fine Rooney two weeks wages for his DUI.

Rooney’s Man United return
On Wednesday, the Star are reporting that Man United intend to hand Rooney a job once his Everton days are done.
And Rooney’s latest run-in with the law has not dampened United’s plan to make his a club ambassador. The Star report the following:
Wayne Rooney will still be offered the chance to become a Manchester United ambassador despite his drink drive shame.
The England and United record goalscorer agreed to take the role when he signed his last contract extension at Old Trafford in 2014.
Everton are back in action on Wednesday in the Carabao Cup as they welcome Sunderland to Goodison Park.
It’s been a rough few weeks for Ronald Koeman’s side, as they’ve slipped into the bottom three in the Premier League.
