Manchester United forward Wayne Rooney has just celebrated the 10-year anniversary of his Premier league debut and he is targeting 10 more seasons in England's top flight.

Manchester United forward Wayne Rooney has said that he wants to remain a Premier League player for another 10 years.

The 26-year-old made his league debut for Everton against Tottenham Hotspur on August 17 2002 and he has since scored 144 goals in 318 top-flight appearances.

"It feels like a long time ago," said Rooney. "It's great to have played in the Premier League for 10 years.

"It's an exciting league and I still get just as excited by playing football as I did when I made my debut.

"I just hope I can play for another 10 years and have as much enjoyment as I did in my first 10."

Rooney will return to Goodison Park tonight as United take on the Toffees in their opening game of the new season.
