Guy has had enough

Just ended Rooney, the media, moyesboys, van gaal and the whole hunna camp


Despite surpassing Bobby Charlton to become England's record goalscorer, Wayne Rooney is not on the same level, says Gordon Banks.

Wayne Rooney will not go down in history as one of England's all-time greatest forwards, according to national icon Gordon Banks.

Rooney overtook Bobby Charlton to become the highest scoring player in England's history with his 50th international goal against Switzerland in Euro 2016 qualifying, adding another to his tally in the 2-0 win over France in November.

However, Banks does not believe the Manchester United captain will warrant the same level of recognition as his 1966 World Cup-winning team-mate when his career comes to an end.

World Cup-winning goalkeeper Banks thinks Rooney's inconsistent form has stopped him making an equivalent impact to those who have gone before him.

"This last year he's sort of been up and down. He's played well and scored one or two goals but then he goes off for a few weeks and you wouldn't even know he's on the field," said the 78-year-old.

"He's got to give it the 90 minutes every time he plays to help the team, but we need someone of his experience in the team, so we really need him to get right.

"For me, he will never be the sort of player like Bobby Charlton or one or two more like that. This guy scored some magnificent goals, really played well and created goals too."
