Wayne Rooney has broken Sir Bobby Charlton’s all-time goal-scoring record for Manchester United with his 250th for the club in a 1-1 draw at Stoke City.
Wayne Rooney’s stoppage-time free kick saved a point for Manchester United as they extended their unbeaten run in the Premier League to 13 games with a 1-1 draw against Stoke City.
Rooney’s free kick goal also levelled the record with his 249th goal in the FA Cup third-round game against Reading two weeks ago, then struck again in injury time at the bet365 Stadium to move ahead of England and United legend Charlton.
The striker produced a superb free kick four minutes into injury time to save United from defeat and extend their unbeaten run to 13 games.
Charlton’s goals came from 758 appearances between 1956 and 1973, while Rooney’s have come from 546 after he joined the club from Everton in 2004.
