Wayne Rooney has taken to social media to share a picture of himself as a young aspiring footballer.

The Manchester United captain will be hoping to make his comeback from an ankle injury when the Red Devils travel to his former club Everton at Goodison Park on Saturday afternoon.

Rooney appeared to be in a reflective mood on Thursday afternoon, as he uploaded the picture above onto his personal Instagram account as his ‘Throwback’ snap.

The England captain sat out the Three Lions’ final Euro 2016 qualifiers due to injury but is hopeful of being fit to face Everton this weekend.
