Wayne Rooney discusses possibility of becoming Manchester United interim manager

Posted by

Wayne Rooney has attempted to distance himself from the Manchester United job after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was dismissed.

Saturday’s 4-1 defeat to Watford was too much for the Man United board to stomach. Solskjaer was sacked on Sunday morning, leaving the Red Devils without a permanent manager.

Michael Carrick has been appointed to lead the team in the meantime, but the club have confirmed they will be looking to appoint an interim manager until the end of the season.

There has been plenty of talk as to who that man can be, but we wouldn’t anticipate it being club legend Wayne Rooney, who’s currently in charge of Derby County.

Despite Derby being rock bottom of the Championship after heavy point deductions, Rooney has reaffirmed his commitment to the club and distanced himself from the Man United job.

All due respect to Wazza, there was never any prospect of him getting offered the job, was there?
