Wayne Rooney has spoken of his pride at joining
Manchester United s 200 club --- and expressed a
hope he will score a few more in the future.
Rooney joined Sir Bobby Charlton, Denis Law
and Jack Rowley in hitting the double century with
his brace in Tuesday night's Champions League tri-
umph over Bayer Leverkusen.
United manager David Moyes has already set
Rooney the task of netting the additional 49 needed
to equal Charlton's club record.
Yet doubt remains over whether the 27-year-old
will get there as he is still to declare a desire to remain
at Old Trafford after all the speculation linking him
with a move to Chelsea this summer.
Speaking in an interview on his own Web site,
Rooney offered no clarification on his stance, having
refused to answer questions about it during a post-
match interview on ITV last night, but there was
room for hope for United supporters.
"It's a great honour for me to have scored 200
goals for a club like Manchester United," he said on
"When you look at the list of top scorers I'm only
the fourth player in the club's history to have reached
this number after Sir Bobby Charlton, Denis Law
and Jack Rowley.
"It's certainly something I'm very proud of.
"My main aim is always to help the team win
games and if I score that's a bonus. Hopefully there
are still a few more goals to come from me yet."
As the summer debate rumbled on with no cor-
rection offered to the Chelsea link, there was a feeling
United's supporters would turn their back on the
player who caused consternation when he handed
in his transfer request in 2010.
Instead, the fans have been firmly behind him,
starting when he warmed up during the opening
game at Swansea last month, to the standing ovation
afforded to the England man when he was replaced
by Javier Hernandez near the end of Tuesday night's
"The reception I got when I was substituted was
amazing and meant a lot," said Rooney.
"I want to thank the fans for that.
"The Manchester United fans have been brilliant
since the start of the season, their support home
and away is always top drawer and means a lot to
the team. The best way to repay the fans is with
good team performances.
"I'm happy to be in a position where I get the
opportunity to score goals --- and long may that con-
That last statement in itself gives fuel to a feeling
Barcelona president Sandro Rosell claims Lionel
Messi has not requested a pay rise and is confident
Andres Iniesta will agree fresh terms.
Reports have suggested that Messi is looking to
be offered an improved salary on the back of Cristiano
Ronaldo's lucrative contract extension at Real Madrid.
The Portuguese forward is now the highest-paid
player in world football, and Barca were warned to
brace themselves for a meeting with Messi.
Rosell is adamant, though, that the Argentine
playmaker is happy with his current deal at the Nou
Camp and will not be making any monetary demands.
He told reporters: "Does Ronaldo's renewal affect
Messi's contract? Messi hasn't said anything to us.
"He's happy here and he's at the best club in the
world. No news is good news."
Rosell is also expecting to deliver good news on
Iniesta in the near future, with the World Cup-win-
ning midfielder in discussions regarding an extension
to a deal which is due to run until 2015.
He added: "Iniesta's renewal won't be a problem.
The wish of both parties is to renew the contract."
Rosell: No Messi
Rooney proud of milestone
Wayne Rooney joined Sir Bobby Charlton, Denis Law and Jack Rowley in hitting
the double century for Manchester United.
Rooney would be willing to sign a contract extension
if it was offered.
Whether United would be willing to extend a deal
due to expire in 2015 on the same enormous terms
For now, though, Rooney is more interested in
maintaining his current impressive form at Man-
chester City on Sunday.
"My main focus now is preparing as well as possible
for the game against City at the weekend," he said.
"We all know they are a strong outfit and have
made some good signings over the summer so we
will definitely need to be at our best."
