Apparently the LuchoRoo takeover of Major League Soccer is complete.
D.C. United are 12-4-4 since Rooney, who finished the year with 12 goals and 7 assists, made his debut on July 14. The former England and Manchester United forward has gotten hotter as the temperatures are cooling.
The 33-year-old struck five of United’s seven goals in October as the Black-and-Red closed out the regular season on a 10-match unbeaten streak.
Rooney opened the final month of the MLS regular season with a second-half brace in a come-from-behind 2-1 win over the Chicago Fire. His stunning free kick from distance, curled around a three-man wall, secured a 1-0 win at Toronto FC; Rooney also struck for a goal in each half of a 3-1 playoff-clinching win over New York City FC.
