Rooney wins Law praise
Wayne Rooney
Rooney has already got one hat-trick under his belt
Ex-Manchester United striker Denis Law believes Wayne Rooney will shatter his goalscoring records at Old Trafford.

Law holds the United scoring record for a season with 46 goals and also has a club-best 18 hat-tricks.

"Rooney can do the lot," Law told the Manchester Evening News. "Eventually he'll have all the United records.

"He has the ability and goal power to beat my 18 hat-tricks and, as for my 46 in a season, I don't see any reason why he can't overtake that one day either."

Rooney already has one hat-trick under his belt following the 6-2 win over Fenerbahce in the Champions League on Tuesday.

"The game against Fenerbahce was just like England in Euro 2004 with Rooney in the side," added Law.

"Every time he got the ball there was a buzz of expectation from the crowd, the opposition defenders started to look in a bit of panic and there was always danger threatening."
