Wayne Rooney can ‘help us take it to the next level’, says DC United


The Blacks and Reds are indeed in dire straits as the England international returns, sitting second in the overall MLS standings with a record 5W-10L-2D midway through their 2022 season. feeling they pulled off a coup by signing Rooney, 36, who bolstered his reputation with a stellar job under very difficult circumstances over two seasons at Derby County and turned down an approach from his former club Everton earlier This year.

He plans to one day work at a club of this magnitude and sees a move to MLS as a testing ground in his own development as a coach, calling England pundits “disrespectful” for calling the move a step backwards.

“I’m at the start of this journey,” Rooney said. “I am at a point in my managerial career where I have to put in the work, I have to put in the hours. Of course, I am an ambitious person, one day I want to manage at the highest level. And that’s part of that process in terms of coming here, trying to develop this club, trying to be successful here, but also developing myself as a manager.

“But also the connection I have with the club, being here before, there’s no other MLS team I would want other than DC United. So I’m proud to be here as a manager, proud to try to develop this club on and off the pitch.
