LONDON (AFP) - Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has warned Premier League defenders that he plans to keep terrorising them for the next decade.

Rooney made his Premier League debut for Everton against Tottenham 10 years ago when he was aged just 16 and fittingly he will kick off United's domestic campaign with a return to Goodison Park on Monday.

With four Premier League titles, a Champions League winners' medal and numerous individual accolades to show for his time at Manchester United, Rooney is well established as one of the best strikers in the world.

But the 26-year-old insists there is still much more to achieve and he plans to keep playing at the highest level for another decade.
