See Wayne Rooney Greatest Regret While Playing For Manchester United
Manchester United legend, Wayne Rooney has revealed the biggest regret of his 14 years at the club.
Rooney described his failure to retired at Old Trafford during his time with the Red Devils as his greatest regret.
Rooney left United as their all-time highest goal scorer to re-join Everton in the summer of 2017 after 14 years at the Theatre of Dreams.
The 33-year-old, however, admitted that he had been hoping to retire as a United player, but his lack of opportunities under manager, Jose Mourinho forced him to leave United.
Speaking about his time at Man United, Goal quoted Rooney as saying: “Of course you miss it.
“It was the highlight of my career, playing for Man United and I was there for so long. But it was the right time.
“I wasn’t playing, first of all. I have always been a player who wants to play. Obviously, I spoke to the manager and it didn’t look like I was going to play, so it was the right decision and the right time for me to go.
“Obviously, you wish, the ideal situation was staying there and finishing your career there, but football changes. Different things happen and things happen for a reason.
“I left with great memories. I had a new opportunity to go and play in the States.
“I had a great time at United, though, and again I am looking forward to going back and seeing a few of my team-mates, and a few friends from the staff who I have made along the way.”
