Rooney eyes another 10 years in the No. 10 t-shirt!

Almost five years on from scoring a hat-trick on his Manchester United debut, Wayne Rooney has said he wants to emulate the careers of Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes and play on at Old Trafford for another decade.

Rooney has played 247 games for United, scored 104 goals and firmly established himself as a supporters' favourite among the Old Trafford contingent. And now, the England striker wants to spend the rest of his playing days helping United secure more silverware.

His first three goals for United came in a dramatic debut-night hat-trick against Fenerbahce in the Champions League, heralding his £27million arrival from Everton.

Following the summer departure of Cristiano Ronaldo, Rooney appreciated that the pressure to fill the goalscoring void left behind by the Portuguese winger would fall on him, and having already netted six times in seven games, he has not disappointed.

After such a successful start to the season, Rooney is setting his sights on wearing the United No 10 shirt for another 10 years.

SAF didn't run out of words while describing the abilities of Rooney-

"He is blessed with some ingredients only great footballers have.

"He has a great determination and hunger to win every match and every training session. That will never change.

"He plays as if he means it. It is a wonderful thing to have."

"When we signed him as a kid, we thought he would become a really top player. Without question he is going in that direction.

All eyes will be on the former Everton Striker who is set to make his 50th European appearance today when Manchester United entertain German champions Wolfsburg in Champions League Group B.
