This Stat Proves That Man Utd's Wayne Rooney Is The Most Consistent Striker In The Premier League Era
Wayne Rooney has been one of the Premier League's best strikers for most of his career, having blossomed so early as a teenager who grabbed one of the toughest leagues in the world by the scruff. Now he is an experienced, talismanic leader who has a responsibility to both provide for and inspire his teammates.
It's this experience and Rooney's wide range of ability that has prompted Louis van Gaal to utilise him in various positions, most surprisingly in a deep midfield role. However, as is Rooney's work rate and talent, he has proven himself useful all over the park. But it's undeniable that he is most effective as a striker, whether it be a number 9 or more of a second striker.
His goal against Sunderland was a historic one. A goal that cements Rooney's place as a Premier League great.
