Derby County manager Wayne Rooney has been named the greatest British player of all time according to a new poll. The said poll on SPORTbiblehad over 50,000 votes from fans. Rooney finished with 40% of the votes and 13% more than Northern Ireland football icon George Best.

Wayne Rooney is widely regarded as a legend for both England and Manchester United after a stellar football career. The Derby County boss holds the all-time record for the player with the most goals for both Manchester United and England. At Manchester United, he scored 253 goals in all competitions. His goals’ record at Manchester United is expected to retain its status until the foreseeable future. Rooney won five Premier League titles, the FA Cup, three League Cups, the Europa League and the Champions League during his time at the Theatre of Dreams.

He was part of the team that beat Premier League rivals Chelsea on penalties to win the Champions League at the end of the 2007/08 season. The two teams found the back of the net once each in the first half and that was how it stayed until the end of normal time and throughout extra time. Frenchman Nicholas Anelka missed his spot kick during sudden death to hand Manchester United their third European title.
Derby boss Wayne Rooney spent 13 years at Manchester United on the back of his transfer from Everton. He left the Toffees to sign for the Red Devils shortly after the Euro 2004 tournament in Portugal. Rooney was one of the breakout stars of the Euro 2004 tournament as England lost to hosts Portugal on penalties.
Wayne Rooney is the all-time goalscorer for the Three Lions of England with 53 goals in 120 games though his record is under threat from Tottenham Hotspur attacker Harry Kane. The current England skipper is now on 50 goals after he scored a late penalty to rescue a 1-1 draw against hosts Germany on Tuesday in their UEFA Nations League clash in Group A3.
