There have been so many Manchester United Legends over the year…Bobby Charlton, Roy Keane, Ryan Giggs, Gary Neville, George Best…I could go on and on. There’s been a fair share of controversy surrounding some legends too and you can’t write this sentence without mentioning the infamous and incredible bowling ball of a man, Wayne Rooney. Since his arrival from Goodison Park at the tender age of 18, the 25-year-old Englishman has quickly established himself as one of the most feared strikers in the world for his direct style of play and terrorizing clinical ability. Though his game has changed in the past season to more of a play-making role, which suits him quite well with Chicharito establishing himself as a deadly one-man poacher in front of the net, Wayne (yes, me and him are that tight where I can address him by his first name, I feel your jealousy), love him or hate him, is an incredible footballer. Nike has realized this too and dedicated an entire t-shirt to the controversial man.
The all-red colorway fits the Red Devils squad perfectly. I wonder if this was an accident…hmm, somehow I doubt it. At any rate, the famed player is honored with black lettering with his last name printed in bold typography. It’s a nice clean look that any fan of the man can embrace. The iconic number 10 sits below “Rooney” in huge type-face and looks highly stylized and modern. It reminds me much of the USMNT numbering on the third jersey the squad donned this summer for the 2011 Gold Cup. The shirt itself is highly comfortable besides its dashing good looks. 100% cotton makes this affordable every-day product easily maintainable and durable. The shirt even breaths decently well, though I do prefer a Rooney jersey breath-ability (of course, this comes at a price, as I’m sure you know).
If you’ve got $20 lying around and you’re a fan of the controversial figure and his play, you can’t go wrong with a sweet looking tee like this one.
