🔴⚫️ BREAKING: Wayne Rooney retires to take over as Derby manager

English Championship giants Derby County have announced that Wayne Rooney has become the club's official manager.

The club confirmed the expected decision on social media on Friday afternoon, saying: "Derby County Football Club is delighted to confirm the appointment of Wayne Rooney as the club’s new manager."

 

The club further confirmed that the 35-year-old Rooney has been handed a two and a half-year contract, which follows after two months since the club parted ways with Phillip Cocu while Rooney was still a player-coach.

Derby, who are placed 22nd in the 24-club league, will see Rooney debut in the dugout at home to Rothernham United on Saturday.
