Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney has been presented with a special award from Sir Bobby Charlton after becoming the club’s all-time greatest goalscorer.
The 31-year-old broke the record, which was previously held by Charlton, against Stoke City, notching his 250th goal for the Red Devils with a last minute equaliser in the 1-1 draw at the Britannia Stadium.
And, ahead of United’s FA Cup fourth-round clash with Wigan, Rooney was given a special trophy by the former record-holder in recognition of his achievement.

The skipper was handed the award just before kick-off to huge applause from the Old Trafford crowd before captaining the side in a rare start.
Despite his record-breaking heroics, Rooney has endured a difficult season for Jose Mourinho’s side and his future at the club is the subject of much speculation.
His goal against Stoke was only the second time he has netted in the Premier League all season and has he managed only five goals in total this campaign.
