Philip Cocu, Derby City manager says Wayne Rooney’s reunion with Manchester United in the FA Cup fifth round “will be special” after Rooney delivered to see Derby the Rams beat League Two Northampton 4-2.
Rooney netted the Championship side’s fourth goal from the penalty spot in Tuesday’s fourth-round replay.
The win means Derby will host Manchester United in the week commencing 2 March.
“I’m sure he will be ready,” said Cocu.
“He’s (Wayne Rooney) going to face the club where he had a wonderful career so of course it is special.”
Rooney is United record goalscorer and enjoyed many years of success at the theatre of dreams, we’re sure he’ll receive a very warm welcome
