Rooney Rewarded For Reaching 200-Goal Milestone

Welcome, Marco!

Everything you need to know about the new boss here.

Wayne Rooney insisted he would rather concentrate on helping Everton than set any individual targets after being acknowledged for reaching 200 Premier League goals.

The Blues forward received the Cadbury’s Milestone Award at USM Finch Farm recently, having notched up his double century in the 1-1 draw at Manchester City earlier this season.

Alan Shearer (260) is the only player to have netted more top flight goals than Rooney since the inception of the Premier League in 1992.

However, England’s all-time leading scorer maintains his focus is only on the Blues.

"I’ve never really been one to set targets," Rooney, who has now struck 208 times in the Premier League, told premierleague.com. "I just continue playing, trying to score goals and help us win games.

"If the goals tally up and reach the next milestone then that’ll be great for me, but also for Everton."

In the video above Rooney also reflects on the first, and probably most famous, of his many strikes against Arsenal back in October 2002.
