Rooney has reportedly never stopped supporting Everton even when he was playing for Man United.

The 28-year-old has been out of action since early December having suffered a serious knee ligament injury which will also rule him out of the opening stages of the upcoming Premier League season.

Everton have confirmed Wayne Rooney will take up the No. 10 shirt from Romelu Lukaku, having made way for the Belgian at Manchester United.

Another new signing Michael Keane played in the second half after his arrival from Burnley and his header saw Dominic Calvert-Lewin nod home only for the goal to be wrongly ruled out for offside.

"It feels great and it is such a huge honour to captain such a great club", Carrick told manutd.com. "It is my 12th year now and I came as a 25 year old".

"I want to be part of it".

"I can not wait to run out at Old Trafford in front of 75,000 fans, but before that pre-season is where the hard work starts and I am looking forward to that first training session". I had a bad game at Watford away and that was it.

Their plane touched down at the Julius Nyerere International Airport in the capital Dar es Salaam on Wednesday as fans filled the airport to catch a glimpse of the world class football players. That's his decision and I respect him as a person, as a manager.
