The ten game goal drought finally ended in astounding fashion during Manchester United’s 4 – 0 victory over Bolton.
Rooney was able to achieve his first Premiership hat trick much to the delight of Rooney and Red Devil fans.
Rooney’s likely return to form was a firm statement against critics who have said that Rooney will not be able to score a goal anymore. Rooney is, of course, very ecstatic especially with the first goal as it also was a reassurance to him that he has not lost it after all. And doing the hat trick to boot really made him feel good about his performance and pumped up his confidence in himself.
Rooney was able to score twice during the opening 16 minutes of ManUtd’s game versus Bolton. He finally finished his treble goals later on in the game.
This is Rooney’s first hat trick ever since he debuted with Manchester United with three goals in ManUtd’s 6 – 2 win over Fenerbahce way back in 2004.
Rooney’s timely return to form is now bolstering people’s expectations for the Red Devils to go all the way and win the Champion’s League one more time. This is a sentiment that is also being shared by Sir Alex Ferguson, who is celebrating his 20th year in charge at Old Trafford. Sir Alex has shared that he wants the team to win the Champion’s League before he quits his position at Old Trafford.
And it looks like the Red Devils are showing the strength to do it. The team only needs a point in its trip to FC Copenhagen in order to secure its place at the knockout stage, and with two matches to spare.
