Wayne Rooney insists Everton is 'not a retirement home' after making an emotional return to Goodison Park.

Rooney rejoined his boyhood club on Sunday after 13 years at Manchester United where he was also the record goalscorer having broken another United icon Bobby Charlton's mark last season.

The 31-year-old believes he can bring back success to a club who have not lifted a trophy since winning the FA Cup in 1995.

The former England captain is of the view that he can continue to enjoy success back at his first club."I'm not coming into a retirement home," said Rooney at his unveiling to the press on Monday.

"I want to play, win and be successful. I feel good. I'm not fit at the moment but that will build up in the next few weeks."I'm excited. I think it's the right time and I'm ready for it."

Rooney admitted in May he had become frustrated by a lack of game time at Old Trafford, where he made just 15 Premier League starts last season.

He hopes he can get more regular games at Goodison Park to secure a place in England’s World Cup squad next summer. (Supersports)
