Former England and Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney basked in an emotional return to Everton.
According to Skysports, Wayne Rooney admitted that playing for Everton again was "a great feeling" after making a winning return to Goodison Park.
He said: "It's something I've been looking forward to for the last few weeks.
"It's obviously great to be at Goodison wearing the blue shirt, it was a great feeling.
"But it was an important game for us so I had to put my emotions to one side. I've done that now and can get down to focusing more on the football."
Regarding the match, the 31-year-old added: "It's very early on in the season... I know we can play better but it's important to win and get the clean sheet.
"Getting the goal gave us a sense of relief and control of the game."
However, Jose Mourinho expressed the deep emotion regarding Rooney’s departure.
As cited by The Telegraph, Mourinho says: “I miss him a lot, I miss the guy a lot, I think he’s a fantastic guy. I’m not the kind of guy that gets normally emotional in my job and I did it with him when he left, but I am sure that he’s going to be very good for Everton, and Everton is going to be very good for him.
“Wayne was a very positive influence. We cannot say we are going to improve the group because Wayne left. No way, or the other way around.
“He was such an important guy and a good guy for us. I just think it is a new period without that face, without that leader, without that good influence on us.”
After 13 years at Old Trafford, Rooney has won five Premier League titles and the Champions League with Man United.
