Manchester United have had a spectacular history, and throughout the years many talented players had their mark at the Old Trafford. Wayne Rooney is one of the Red Devils beloved players, he had an amazing career and was always devoted to the club. He was the club’s captain and talisman. After leaving United back in 2017, Rooney passed his No. 10 shirt to a new generation represented by Marcus Rashford. And it seems the youngster is worth wearing it, as he is now the fans’ favourite. Now, let’s compare the Red Devils’ No. 10 stars based on the stats, per Transfermarkt.

Rooney moved to Manchester United from Everton for £25.6 million in 2004, when he was just 18 years old. He spent 13 years at the Old Trafford, having played 559 games, scored 253 goals and provided 146 assists. With the Red Devils, Rooney won 5 Premier League trophies, 4 English League Cups, 5 English Super Cups, a FIFA Club World Cup, an English Cup and a Champions League trophy. Rooney was 2009/10 Manchester United’s Player of the Year and had also won the U21 Premier League title.

Rashford is a youngster, just like Rooney, when he joined the Red Devils. The 22-year-old is a Manchester United academy graduate, and since 2016, he plays for the senior team. Throughout his United career Rashford has played 201 games, scored 64 times and provided 32 assists. At the Old Trafford he has won an English League Cup, a FA Cup, an Europa League trophy, an English Super Cup and two U21 Premier League titles.

Unlike Rooney, Rashford still has a career at the Old Trafford and will have time to break new records and win a number of trophies.
