Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney reflects on a great weekend in the company of Everton midfielder Darron Gibson
Wayne Rooney reflected on a great weekend on Monday morning as the Manchester United captain posted a photo with his former team-mate Darron Gibson.
The England international appeared to enjoy himself somewhere with a sunny clime as he relaxed following the end of the 2014/15 season with club and country.
And Rooney posed with Everton and Republic of Ireland midfielder Gibson for a snap which the United striker uploaded to his Instagram page.
Rooney posted: “What a weekend!”
Gibson and Rooney were team-mates at Old Trafford for over six years before the Irishman moved to the Toffees in 2012.
Last week, Rooney met up with Gibson’s new team-mate Tom Cleverley at the Everton midfielder’s lavish wedding, joining up with Danny Welbeck and Alex Bruce.
Rooney wrote: “With the lads at Tom’s wedding yesterday. Congratulations and thanks for a brilliant day”
Rooney enjoyed a relatively successful first season under new Manchester United manager Van Gaal following the Dutchman’s appointment as David Moyes’ permanent successor last summer.
He scored 12 goals and made five assists in 33 Premier League games as he helped the Red Devils secure a top-four finish and a route into next season’s Champions League.
