OFFICIAL: Rooney will be player-manager at Derby County from 2020
In recent days, there has been talk of Rooney returning to English football to become a player-manager.
Finally, it has been confirmed who will be his new team: Derby County, who have announced it via their official channels this Tuesday.
Therefore, Rooney will leave the MLS at the end of the year to join Derby's ranks as a player-manager from January 2020.
It is worth remembering that in these moments, the coach of the British side is Phillip Cocu, so he will presumably be his assistant.
The striker will sign an 18 month contract with the Championship side.
