World News – GB – Shocking nomination of Wayne Rooney as league manager seems imminent


Phillip Cocu is a dead man walking in Derby County, with Wayne Rooney set to replace him as manager, according to the Daily Mail

Derby currently sits 22nd in the Championship If the Rams are unable to turn their fortunes, they could be relegated to Ligue 1, which would be disastrous given they have been on promotion for the past few seasons

It’s no surprise that, as reported by the Daily Mail, manager Phillip Cocu is on the verge of receiving his marching orders. What is surprising, however, is who the report says Derby would like to replace it with

Championship clubs often go for managers with pedigree This is an incredibly difficult division to navigate with promotion to the Premier League being the ultimate prize but the most difficult task

Nevertheless, the Daily Mail believe England legend Wayne Rooney, who is currently a player-coach at Pride Park, is in line to replace Cocu – whose Derby time could end tonight if they lose to Nottingham Forest

As the report notes, Rooney has yet to even complete his UEFA coach badges yet, but he could be thrown into the depths by soon finding himself in the Derby hot seat

If so, it will be a ‘sink or swim’ situation for the former Manchester United striker
