England legend, Gary Lineker believes Wayne Rooney is not appreciated enough in spite of his immense contribution to the game of football.

Rooney already has 2 goals in 2 game for Everton and got his 200th English Premier League goal in the game against Manchester City.

He is also the current highest goal scorer for England with 53 goals and Manchester United with 253 goals.

“He is one of our best players of all time,” Lineker said.

When he was asked if Rooney who is former England captain is not appreciated enough, Lineker said: I don’t he is although he is regarded as one of the best British players of all time. He has had a great career.”

Rooney Is Unfortunate

Lineker added that Rooney was unfortunate to play at a time when he was pretty much the only top player in the team after the golden generation

Rooney made his debut at age 18 in the 2004 Euros with the likes of Frank Lampard, Michael Owen John Terry, Steven Gerrard, David Beckham, Gary Neville, Paul Scholes, and Ashley Cole as teammates.

He found the back of the net four times but got injured in the quarter final stage and this affected the team as they failed to qualify for the semifinal stage like they have failed to do since 1996.
