Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney’s reaction to record-breaking goal gets applause from fans [Best Tweets]

Wayne Rooney broke the club goalscoring record for Manchester United against Stoke City, and the fans are putting him up as an example for Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud to follow.

A sublime free-kick from Wazza in stoppage time helped the Red Devils salvage a point in a tough fixture against the Potters at the Bet 365 Stadium. However his actions after have been applauded on social media.

Rooney’s goal was his 250th for United, breaking the long standing record of most goals scored for the club that was held by Sir Bobby Charlton for so many years. However the Englishman didn’t celebrate and instead charged back to the half-way line looking to restart the game and get a winning goal for United.

This stands in sharp contrast to the actions of Olivier Giroud, who came under a lot of criticism for madly celebrating a late equalizer against Bournemouth a few weeks ago.

Manchester United fans were quick to point out the difference in the mentalities between the two players after the game, shaming the Gunners’ Flamboyant French striker.
