Jose Mourinho has said Wayne Rooney’s best days are yet to come after the forward equalled Sir Bobby Charlton’s goal scoring record.
Rooney scored the opener against Reading in the FA Cup third round tie to match Sir Bobby’s record. Rooney reached the milestone of 249 goals in 543 games, 215 matches and four seasons quicker than Charlton.
Anthony Martial added a superb second and Marcus Rashford scored a brace as United blanked reading 4-0 to reach the next round of FA Cup. The Red Devils are now on an eight-match winning streak since September 2009.
The 31-year old England international hasn’t featured regularly this season as Mourinho has been preferring Zlatan Ibrahimović for his devastating form.
Mourinho said, “It is not the best day for him. The best day will arrive. It is just a question of when.
“It’s amazing. Everyone knows who Sir Bobby Charlton is and what he means for the history of the club and English football. For Rooney to be level is fantastic.”
