I learned something from Wayne Rooney every day, says Manchester United's Jesse Lingard

Jesse Lingard learned something from Wayne Rooney every day and believes Manchester United's all-time top scorer will be welcomed back heartily when he returns with Everton this weekend.This summer Rooney, 31, decided to end his decorated spell at Old Trafford in search of game time that was becoming less frequent under United boss Jose Mourinho.Rooney secured a move back to Everton and has impressed on his return to Goodison Park, even retiring from international football with England to focus on life with his boyhood club.The forward returns to Old Trafford for the first time this Sunday - a day before facing a charge of drink driving at Stockport Magistrates' Court - and Lingard is thankful he could call him a team-mate."His experience in games, especially when you're young," Lingard said.
