Rooney set to return to DC United as manager

Wayne Rooney will return to the Major League Soccer side, DC United as the club's new head coach having stepped down as Derby County manager last month.

Rooney, 36, had spent eighteen months in Washington at DC United before joining Derby as a player-coach in January 2020 when The Rams parted ways with former manager, Phillip Cou.

His first managerial job saw him lead the club through administration and relegation to League One.

DC United have been without a manager since April, are second bottom of the Eastern Conference and were beaten 7-0 by Philadelphia Union on Friday.

The former Everton forward, who made his professional debut for the Toffees in August 2002 aged just 16, is expected to be unveiled by DC on Tuesday.
