London, Mar 27(ANI): Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has revealed that wearing gloves is the secret behind his goal glut, which is making him this season's highest goal scorer.
Rooney has pulled on black mitts for games in even the mildest of weather, and now reckons they are his lucky charm.
The 24-year-old has also vowed not to take them off until his form, which has seen him score 33 goals so far this season, runs into a lean patch.
"Wayne's become a bit superstitious about these gloves. And since he started wearing them he's been scoring plenty of headers - not something he was renowned for," The Sun quoted an Old Trafford source, as saying.
"If he carries on like this, he could still be wearing these gloves on a baking hot day in May," he added.
With 26 goals in the Premier League, Rooney tops the list ahead of Chelsea's Didier Drogba on 24 and Sunderland's Darren Bent with 20. (ANI)
