In 2011 during a match against rivals City, Rooney scored a screamer to win the match 2-1 for United.
Nani whipped the ball into the box before the ex-England skipper found the net with an incredible bicycle kick.
One fan tweeted: “Thank you for creating and scoring the greatest goal to be scored in the Premier League.”
Rooney claimed in 2017 that it was the most important goal of his career as United went on to win the Premier League title.
And legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson admitted that it was the greatest strike he had seen at Old Trafford.
