VIDEO: Wayne Rooney’s Amazing, Game-Winning Bicycle Kick
Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has been struggling in what might be the worst season of his career, but Saturday he scored what he says is the best goal of his career to give his team a crucial victory over Manchester City.
With 12 minutes left in the game, the striker received a cross from Nani that was high and behind him. That’s when Rooney adjusted for the beautiful overhead bicycle kick that gave Man U the 2-1 victory. “It’s definitely [my] best goal I think I’ve scored,” Rooney said after the game.
The game winner was only Rooney’s fifth league goal of the season, and it was just as important for his team’s title hopes as it was for the struggling star’s spirits. The victory kept Man U four points ahead of Arsenal in the race for the Premier League championship, and put third-place Man City nearly out of reach at eight points back with 11 games left.
