Rooney wanted to stay at Everton

MLS Review Rooney impresses on debut Galaxy leave it late

Wayne Rooney claims that Everton "made it clear" that they would prefer him to leave the club during the summer transfer window.

Wayne Rooney has revealed that his move to DC United came about after Everton informed him that they'd be happy for him to leave.

Rooney returned to Goodison Park last July following a trophy-laden 13-year stint at Manchester United, and went on to net 11 goals for the Toffees, finishing 2017-18 as their top scorer.

He continued saying that he still had two years left on his contract at Old Trafford and he could have very easily stayed there and collected his wages till his contract had expired but he chose otherwise.

On this point, Rooney said: "For whatever reason, I still don't know".

"But that's football. And that gave me a decision to make, and I made this decision".

Rooney had a hand in two of DC United's goals as they beat the Vancouver Whitecaps 3-1 in the MLS, although did not get on the scoresheet himself. Rooney said, trailing off.

Ten minutes into the second half, fans began chanting "We want Rooney" and moments later he replaced Darren Mattocks to an ovation from the crowd of 20,504, Olsen limiting his time until he regains top fitness.

He said: "Well, I said to Everton, I said, 'Listen, I'm not a kid, and if this is what you want, tell me".

"So this option became available as well as a few different ones, and I just felt this was the right one".

Potential DC star Wayne Rooney's new neighbourhood?

A host of famous players have played in MLS in recent years, including the likes of Steven Gerrard, Frank Lampard and Ashley Cole, with the latter now playing for LA Galaxy alongside Rooney's former team-mate Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

"I was just as eager to get on the pitch as they were to see me on the pitch", Rooney said.

Looking at a one-goal deficit as the second half started, the Whitecaps came out firing on all cylinders, controlling the pace and putting a lot of pressure on United's back line. "I felt I was doing OK".

"I expect to score goals, create goals and be a help in the way the team plays", Rooney said.
