Rooney's Aim: Beating Giggs' Record At United

Rooney's Aim: Beating Giggs' Record At United

Wayne Rooney has reiterated his desire to see out his career at Manchester United. The new father is aiming to beat Ryan Giggs' appearance record.

'I have always said I would love to end my career at this club,' he told MUTV.

'If I can get anywhere near what Ryan has done it would be an amazing achievement because I regard him as the perfect role model.

'You must have great respect for the way his life is and the way he handles himself. The things he has done throughout his career and the things he has won are unbelievable.

'Everyone looks up to him and if I even get close to the number of games he has played I would be delighted.'

Well, Giggs has 815 appearances to his name while Rooney can boast 252 games. At an average of 45 games per season Rooney would need at least 12-13 more campaigns to catch Ryan which does not seem impossible it is certainly a very, very distant target for a 24-year-old.

Yes if he keeps himself fit plus if he carries the same hunger for the game like giggsy,then I don't see any reason why he can't emulate giggsy.

He won't emulate Giggsy because he will eventually need to be sold to raise funds to keep the mighty manure afloat, just like the mighty Tranaldo was sold to raise funds to keep the mighty manure etc etc.
