The Red Devils Captain, Wayne Rooney's amazing free-kick against Stoke City in their 1-1 draw on Saturday, means he now breaks Sir Bobby Charlton's record and is now Manchester United's all-time top scorer.

The United captain started from the bench, but with his team trailing to a Juan Mata own goal late into the match, manager Jose Mourinho summoned him from the bench.

Two weeks ago, Rooney equalled United's all-time goalscoring record,after he netted his 249th strike for the club against Reading in their 3rd round Emirates FA Cup tie on Saturday.

That goal took him level with the record set by Charlton between 1956 and 1973.

Rooney signed for the Red Devils in a £27million transfer from Everton in 2004. He has reached the 249-goal mark four years and 215 games quicker than Charlton managed.

His record-equalling goal came in just his 543rd game for the club.

He now has 250 goals for the Red Devils.
