“When I finally got the record it was a great moment for me. It was a record which had stood for so long with Sir Bobby so it was a special moment.

”Manchester United is the biggest club in England and is one of the biggest clubs, if not the biggest club, in world football. To be the record scorer for the club is something I am extremely proud of.

Rooney's 23-minute conversation with MUTV's Stewart Gardner also covers his new life in the United States, his feelings on playing for England again and his views on the current season for the Reds.

In addition, the striker answers questions on three players who fulfill his former role at Old Trafford, namely Romelu Lukaku, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford.
