On Friday, Wayne Rooney took retirement from football and joined Derby County as a manager
England and Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney has officially took retirement from his football career.
He has been one of the greatest footballer in the world in his playing career. Rooney announced his retirement on Friday.
“Despite other offers I knew instinctively Derby County was the place for me,” Rooney said on Friday. “I can promise everyone involved in the club and all our fans, my staff and I will leave no stone unturned in achieving the potential I have witnessed over the last 12 months of this historic football club.”
With his retirement, Rooney has signed as Derby County’s manager with which he had played for two years.
“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,” Derby CEO Stephen Pearce said.
“During that nine-game run we also dramatically improved their 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.”
Rooney, 35, has scored 366 goals in 884 appearances in all competitions combined. He is still the top scorer for Manchester United with 253 goals. He had a legendary playing career. Hope he will have a great managerial career too.
