I'm not England's best goal scorer, says Rooney

Out of being humble or true, Wayne Rooney does not consider himself Manchester United's best goal scorer.

Wayne Rooney

is without a doubt one of the best

Manchester United

and England players in history. But apparently, he doesn’t consider himself one of the best goal scorers. Not for


and not for Manchester United.

Rooney told the UTD Podcast when asked if he could have been even more prolific: “I know what you’re saying, but I think I’ve had time and I’ve obviously had a long career to get the Man United record and the England record, and to become the most-capped outfield player for England. 

“For instance, in two years’ time, Harry Kane will, barring injury, pass my England goals record because he is more of a natural goalscorer than I am.

“Ruud van Nistelrooy, if he had more time here, he would have gone on to get the United record. Obviously, it is great and I am really proud to have those records, but it is not something I look at. It says ‘Man United’s greatest goalscorer’ but I wouldn’t say I am Man United’s greatest goalscorer.”
