Rooney wants to emulate Giggs

Table of Contents
Wayne Rooney has revealed his desire to emulate Ryan Giggs, Manchester United's longest-serving player, having topped 200 appearances at the age of 23.

The 34-year old Welshman has now played 768 games for United, 10 more than Sir Bobby Charlton, and looks set to shatter that tally as he continues to be granted pitch time by manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

Rooney is 12 years Giggs' junior but has already made a mark on the English game.

At 23 the former Everton star has made more than 200 appearances for the Red Devils in all competitions, winning two Premier League titles and a Champions League trophy.

He told MUTV: "I want to stay at this club for as long as I’m wanted here.

"I want to keep playing and keep scoring goals.

"Who knows, when I’m Giggsy’s age, if I’m anywhere near his record and achievements, I’ll be very pleased."

Giggs is showing a good role model to the young player in Manchester United. I am sure that Wayne Rooney can do it too since he is getting mature!!
