Wayne Rooney reveals plans for Derby County, as he’s appointed manager

Manchester United’s top scorer of all time, Wayne Rooney, has outlined his plans for Derby County, after his recent appointment as interim manager.

The Englishman has taken over from ex-Derby boss, Philip Cocu, who failed to improve the championship side, leaving them with just one win out of 11 matches.

Speaking on his plans for the club, Rooney said he intends to use some of the experiences he has gained working with some of the best managers in the world, including Sir Alex Ferguson.

“I have worked with some very good managers and possibly the greatest of all time,” the former United striker said.

“I am not going to say I am going to do it like Sir Alex Ferguson. You have to work with the players you have got and you have to manage players correctly. But there are things you can take from other managers.

“I am ambitious, I want to go into management. I have been quite open about that. I wouldn’t be an ambitious person if I sat here and said I didn’t want the job. There is an opportunity to show the different ideas that you have.”

Rooney joined The Rams as a player coach back in January, and will be taking charge of his first game when they face Bristol City on Saturday.
