Wayne Rooney has revealed that he wants to go into Football management once he finally hangs up his boots.
The Everton striker still has plenty of gas in the tank to get a few more years out of his career, after making the move down the East Lancs Road back to play for his boyhood Blues, but has revealed that he plans to stay in the game once his playing days finally come to an end.
Speaking as a guest pundit on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football, Rooney said:
“I would like to go into management.
“I have been involved in football my whole life. That is something I know.
“I have enjoyed tonight, and I am sure I will do a lot more work on television, but ultimately I want to go into management.”
Rooney will of course be hoping that his potential career on the sidelines can be as successful as the one he has had on the pitch. The 32-year-old has won everything in club football, including five Premier League titles, one FA Cup, three League Cups, one Champions League and one Europa League. He is also the all time leading goalscorer for both Manchester United and England.
In a wide ranging discussion, Rooney also said that Alexis Sanchez is a ‘perfect’ fit for Manchester United, while also claiming Harry Kane could be forced to leave Tottenham.
