Wayne Rooney was hugged by a pitch-invading Manchester United fan during his second debut for Everton.

The England international opted to leave Old Trafford for his boyhood side after being frozen out of the first team picture by Jose Mourinho last season.

 He’s thought to have taken a huge pay cut to re-join the club he left 13 years ago.

But one Tanzanian fan clearly didn’t want to accept that the 31-year-old was no longer a Manchester United player during a pre-season friendly match on Thursday.

 The supporter, who was wearing a Red Devils kit, ran onto the pitch during the game and gave him a warm hug.
The incident passed as both hilarious and scary as people were unaware of the intentions of the man whose excitement of seeing the iconic Rooney proved too much.
The fan was quickly descended upon by security.

Rooney gave Toffees fans a glimpse of what he’s still capable of during the match by rifling in a wonder goal from 30 yards.

Everton went on to win the match against Gor Mahia 2-1.

Rooney was taken off at half-time as Ronald Koeman made big changes to his line-up.
