rooney becomes a united centurion

Manchester United's Wayne Rooney upon scoring his 1st goal against Wigan Athletic on Saturday 22nd August reached a landmark

100 goals for Manchester United.

 

The White Pele who now sits 18th Manchester United top scorers of all time joined an exclusive club of special players cementing himself at such a young age in Manchester United History.

 

Rooney said "ďObviously Iím pleased to have scored 100 goals for Man United,Ē  ďItís a great achievement, and Iím proud of it, but there is still more goals in me and more games to play so itís not something I have been concentrating on.Ē
 

mufcinfo.com decided to look deeper to see just where Rooney's goals leave him in the All Time Top Scorers list.
