Rooney gets testimonial game.



Manchester United's official website reports that captain Wayne Rooney will have a testimonial game to mark 12 years of his stay at Manchester United.

Rooney moved to Manchester United from Everton in 2004 at the age of 18 and has since scored 236 goals, and has won many titles with the club.

The money generated from the event will be donated to Charity. The organisations to which the testimonial proceeds will be distributed by the Foundation include the NSPCC, Alder Hey Childrens’ Hospital, Claire House Hospice and the Manchester United Foundation, reports manutd.com.

Speaking to manutd.com on the testimonial, Rooney said: "I would like to thank everyone involved in making this testimonial become a reality.


"Most of all I want to thank the fans for all their incredible support for me and the team since I joined the club. The match night will obviously be special for me and my family but I hope it will be a night of celebration for all involved and that we can also deliver one or two surprises.

"Most of all I hope the fans will come out in force and help raise as much money as possible for these amazing charities, all of which are very close to my heart for different reasons.”
