When Wayne Rooney scored that goal against Manchester City in 2011, Adnan Januzaj was not even on the books of Manchester United.
But the youngster has named that spectacular overhead kick from the England international forward as the best goal he was even seen.
‘I would say Wazza’s against Manchester City’, Januzaj told Inside United when asked about the best goal he has even seen.
Januzaj did not exactly pinpoint which Rooney’s goal against City is his favourite, but one can safely assumed that he is speaking about the strike at Old Trafford on Saturday February 12, 2011.
Former Everton star Rooney found the target in the 78th minute when he showed world-class technique to leap high in the air and turn in Nani’s cross with an instinctive overhead finish.
City goalkeeper Joe Hart looked stunned as United went on to win the Premier League match 2-1.
