Everything Wayne Rooney has said on Everton job as Lampard nears sack


Wayne Rooney is currently one of the favourites to become the next Everton manager with Frank Lampard set to lose his job. The Englishman started his football career at the Toffees, who were also his boyhood team, and would be a popular choice with fans given his affinity for the club.

It is not the first time Rooney has been linked with the vacancy at Goodison Park having originally been approached for the role this time last year following the sacking of Rafael Benitez. However, he was then in a desperate battle against relegation with crisis hit Derby County, deciding to stay with the club until their takeover at the end of the season. 

“Everton approached my agent and asked me to interview for the vacant job, which I turned down,” Rooney said last January. “I believe I will be a Premier League manager – I believe I’m ready for that, 100%. And if that is with Everton one day in the future that would be absolutely great. But I’ve got a job here that I’m doing at Derby County which is an important job to me.”

“For me it’s about putting the work in and developing myself and if I do that and I do it in the right way, then I feel these jobs, these opportunities will come to me eventually.” 

It remains to be seen if Rooney will become the next Everton manager, with a host of names potentially in the picture, but it appears the man himself is not yet sure if he wants to take on the job at this stage of his career.
