I Want To Manage Everton FC -Wayne Rooney

Uncategorized

Wayne Rooney will begin coaching next season and has set his sights on one day taking over as Everton manager.

After 13 trophy laden years at Manchester United, Rooney returned to Goodison Park in the summer, and has become an integral part of the Blues first team.


The 32-year-old boyhood Blue is this season’s top scorer and is set to be recalled to the starting line-up for Saturday’s Premier League clash at home to Goodison by manager Sam Allardyce.

Rooney, though, has already set sights on the next stage of his career.

Speaking to ex-Liverpool defender and fellow Scouser Jamie Carragher in the Telegraph, Rooney has underlined his ultimate aim.

“The main thing I want to have a go at is management,” said Rooney.

“I would love to stay at Everton in a coaching role or hopefully manager one day. It is something I want to do – to stay involved, but if that is not possible I will look to see where the opportunities are for me. I am determined to become a manager.

“From next season I want to be doing some coaching sessions with the under-14s at Everton.

“It would be good to have all my badges by the time I have finished, but it is also about having the chance to carry on when I have so I can get straight into coaching.”

Asked by Carragher if there was a chance he could one day be “boxing” with Steven Gerrard – who has already taken his first steps towards management at Liverpool – on the touchline in a derby, Rooney added: “Ha ha. I hope so.

“Obviously my first objective is to do well as a player over the next few years.

“Then I hope the role can grow into something beyond that. It is something I will talk about with the club when they and I feel the time is right.”

For now, though, Rooney is busy ticking off his to-do list before hanging up his boots.
