Rooney: ‘I want to manage Everton!’

Wayne Rooney has decared that he wants to be Everton’s manager one day in the future.

The former Man Utd and England captain revealed to Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football programme earlier this week that he intends to go into club management when he finally hangs up his boots, now, he has told The Telegraph that he hopes to manage his boyhood club.

Rooney made his break through at Everton agreed just 16, scoring THAT goal against Arsenal which put his name firmly on the lips of everyone. He eventually moved to Manchester United aged 18, where he would go on to become the clubs leading record goalscorer, as well as becoming the all time record goalscorer for England too.

He returned to Goodison Park last summer on a free transfer, and now has his sights set on being a future manager of the Toffees.

He said:

“The main thing I want to have a go at is management. I’d love to stay at Everton in a coaching role or hopefully be 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.”
