Wayne Rooney Quit Football

Wayne Rooney has become Derby County manager on a permanent basis, after he quit from football.

The Championship club side made this known in a statement on today.

Wayne Rooney is regarded as one of the topnotch players of his generation.

The England legend banged 53 goals in 120 games for his country and scored a record 253 goals for Manchester United.

The 120 games played the former England captain appeared in put him second on England’s all-time appearance list behind the 125 of goalkeeper Peter Shilton.

Wayne Rooney said he knew Derby County was the club for him as soon as he returned from the U.S. in January 2020, having spent a year and a half with DC United.

“When I first arrived back in the UK, I was completely blown away by the potential of Derby County Football Club,’’ he said.

“The stadium, training ground, the quality of the playing staff and the young players coming through, and of course the fan base that has remained loyal and supportive.’’

Liam Rosenior becomes assistant manager, while Shay Given is the new first team coach and former England manager Steve McClaren continues as technical director and advisor to the board of directors.

Derby County chief executive officer Stephen Pearce said Rooney was the perfect man for the job.

“Our recent upturn in results under Wayne was married together with some positive performances, notably the 2-0 home win over Swansea City and the 4-0 victory at Birmingham City.

“During that nine-game run, we also dramatically improved the defensive record and registered five clean sheets in the process, while in the attacking third we became more effective and ruthless too.

“Those foundations have provided a platform for the club to build on in the second half of the season under Wayne’s guidance.’’

Derby County were English champions in 1972 and 1975 but, since they were relegated to the second tier in 2002, they have spent just one more season in the top flight.
