If anyone had forgotten just how much Wayne Rooney has achieved at Manchester United, he gave them a reminder with his record-breaking 250th goal for the club against Stoke City.
The England captain has replaced Sir Bobby Charlton as the club’s all-time leading goalscorer, and just in time, with his long-term future still uncertain.
The 31-year-old could still leave Old Trafford this summer, when he’ll have just a year left on his contract.
Jose Mourinho has effectively said it will be up to Rooney how he ends his career.
Sir Alex Ferguson, though, speaking to MUTV, wanted to give a further reminder of the veteran’s service at the Theatre of Dreams.

Rooney must be particularly keen for United to reach the final of the EFL Cup, which they can confirm on Thursday when they play their second leg against Hull City, over whom they already have a 2-0 aggregate lead.
The final at Wembley next month could be one of his last opportunities to win a trophy with the Red Devils, as they are all but out of the title race and still need to prioritise making the top four.
