Man Utd ace Rooney wants to break all goal scoring records

Manchester United ace Wayne Rooney wants to become the club's greatest striker.

At 27, the former Everton man clearly feels time is on his side to overhaul both and looks to the likes of Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs as role models.

"Sir Bobby Charlton holds both (England and United scoring records) so that's a great challenge," Rooney said in an interview with Shortlist magazine. "The guy is a legend and is such a presence around the club.

"If I could break his record as Manchester United's top goalscorer and maybe even England's...wow! That is such a great incentive.

"I want to play as long as I can and to have shared a dressing room with the likes of Giggsy and Paul Scholes is inspiration to do just that. At least another 10 years would be great."
