Man Utd striker wants to emulate Beckham

Rooney is keen to reach a similar iconic status to that of the AC Milan midfielder.

Beckham recieved standing ovations when he returned to Old Trafford for the first time since leaving the club.

“David Beckham was a great servant for this club and we were all delighted with the reception,” said Rooney.

“I have plenty of years ahead of me but if I can get half the plaudits he has I will be very happy.”
