Written by darling on March 5, 2020
Derby County captain, Wayne Rooney, has warned his former club, Manchester United, that he will celebrate if he scores against them in tonight’s FA Cup fifth-round clash at the iPro Stadium.
The 34-year-old also said he would do everything possible to make sure that Derby defeated Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side and qualify for the quarter-final stage where they will take on Norwich City, who defeated Tottenham on Wednesday.
Derby County head to the game after defeating Sheffield Wednesday 3-1 in the Championship last weekend, while the Red Devils played a 1-1 draw with Everton in the Premier League.
“Yeah, of course, I will celebrate if I score against Manchester United,” Rooney was quoted by Mirror UK as saying.
“My time at Man United, I loved every minute of it.
“But I am a Derby player now, and I want to win with Derby.
“For that 90 minutes or 120 minutes, obviously I want Manchester United to lose.
“Everyone will understand I want Derby to win this game – and after that, I will go back to being a fan and wanting them to win again.”
The kick-off time for the game is 8:45 pm, Nigerian time.
