Kai was playing in the Under-12 team last season and scored 56 goals, as well as laying on 28 assists, according to a post he made on Instagram.

Rooney Snr was known for his goalscoring prowess and creativity, and it seems like son Kai is very much following in that mould.

The youngster signed a contract with Manchester United in December 2020 and was pictured holding up a shirt with 10 – the number his dad wore during his illustrious career at Old Trafford.

At the time, Wayne said: “Proud day. Kai signing for Man Utd. Keep up the hard work son.”

The Rooney family will no doubt be incredibly proud of those incredible goal and assist achievements last season.

But he still has some way to go to match Wayne’s record in a Red Devils shirt.
