Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney poses with his match ball after he netted a hat-trick against Brugge
Wayne Rooney has promised his hat-trick ball to his eldest son Kai after the Manchester United captain scored a treble in a 4-0 victory over Club Brugge.
The Red Devils captain hadn’t score a goal in four games in all competitions ahead of their trip to Belgium but the striker took just 57 minutes to hand United a commanding 3-0 lead in Belgium last night.
Rooney, who scored his first United hat-trick on his Champions League debut against Fenerbahce in 2004, got his team-mates to jot their signatures on the ball ahead of gifting his son Kai with memento.
Rooney wrote on his Instagram page: “New ball for Kai ⚽️⚽️⚽️”
The Red Devils booked their place in Thursday’s Champions League draw after a 7-1 aggregate win against Club Brugge in the Champions League play-off clash.
United skipper Rooney failed to score in United’s opening three Premier League games of the season against Tottenham Hotspur, Aston Villa and Newcastle United.
The Red Devils have collected a respectable seven points from their opening three Premier League games this term ahead of their trip to Liberty Stadium this weekend.
