Manchester United forward Wayne Rooney has revealed that he might have been a boyhood Everton fan but always held United in the highest regard, most notably citing Eric Cantona as a player he loved to watch.
Rooney is quoted by the Sun, saying: “Growing up, although I was an Everton fan, I loved watching United – especially Eric Cantona.”
“He had something about him. You looked at him and he was fearsome. And that was just on TV! Imagine playing up against him.”
