Toffees ace Wayne Rooney spoke to reporters in the aftermath of his side's superb 4-0 win over West Ham on Wednesday night, and expressed his delight at capping off his first hat-trick for the Blues with what he described as the best strike he has ever hit, as quoted by the Daily Mail.
The 32-year-old joined Everton from Manchester United in the summer, and has impressed on the most part, despite his side's struggles, scoring eight goals in 16 outings thus far for his boyhood club.
Things are beginning to look much brighter at Goodison Park following Wednesday night's positive result, however, and the recent appointment of Sam Allardyce as the club's new manager.
Rooney was the star of the show against the Hammers, scoring a scintillating hat-trick, and he told reporters why it meant so much to him, as quoted by the Daily Mail:
"I hit it as well as I've ever hit a football, it's my first hat trick for Everton and I'm absolutely delighted. For that to be the third goal of my first ever hat trick makes it really special. It's one of the best goals I've ever scored."
Next up for Rooney and co is a home game in the Premier League against Huddersfield Town tomorrow, and it would take a brave man to bet against the Toffees chalking up another victory, especially after the hammering that David Wagner's side took at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday.
