“Has a drink. Grows a beard. Plays like Messi” – Man Utd fans not surprised by Rooney’s electric performance during Feyenoord win (Tweets)

It has been quite a bit of a stormy time for Wayne Rooney recently. After being consigned to the bench following a string of poor performances at the start of the season, the Manchester United captain came in again for some heavy criticisms following his drinking antics while on international duty.

But on Thursday against Feyenoord, while sporting a fantastic beard, Wayne Rooney showed fans and critics alike that he may be back to be his best with a stunning performance bagging a goal and an assist.

In fact so impressive was Rooney’s performance that he drew comparisons to the legend Messi himself with the dinked finish. A case of red wine or the new beard, we’ll perhaps never know the reasons behind Roon’s recent revival, but as evidenced from his performance versus Feyenoord, he certainly does seems a different player than the one we have been used to seeing for some time now.
