Wayne Rooney eyes management once playing career ends

Wayne Rooney has stated a desire to move into club management once he hangs up his boots for good.

The Manchester United captain, who only needs four more goals to match Sir Bobby Charlton’s club record¬†of 249, conducted a Q&A session with Ashley Young, and revealed his wish to move to the dugout once he retires.¬†

“Hopefully one day a club will give me an opportunity to manage and I can be successful doing it.

“Football is what I’ve done my whole life. I’m currently in the process of taking my coaching badges so hopefully when I finish playing I’ll have that complete.”

Rooney also had time to reflect on his favourite goal for United in his 12-year career with the club. “The overhead kick vs. City is the best one. But I think the most memorable one was Blackburn away, the penalty. We won the league.”

He also had a chance to poke some fun at a teammate, when asked about United’s slowest player: “Slowest player? I’d have to say Daley Blind. Sorry, Daley. He makes up for it with his mind, he’s got a quick brain.”
