DC United coach Rooney admits Man Utd and Everton his dream jobs

DC United coach Wayne Rooney says Everton and Manchester United would be his dream jobs.

Rooney, speaking in an interview with CNN, has now revealed managing Everton or Manchester United ‘would be a dream’ with the two clubs close to his ‘heart’.

He said: “Obviously, Everton and Manchester United are the two clubs who are really close to my heart so to manage one of the two would be a dream.

“I’m still gaining a lot of experience from what I’m doing. You want to learn, and I want to go into Everton or Manchester United,

“I want to go in there and be able to give the best version of me. I’d be naive to say ‘I’m going to go and manage Manchester United in the next year or so’.

“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.”

He then added: “I love it. Trying to develop players, young players, but also having that relationship with the more senior players, and trying to develop them.

“The appealing thing, obviously going back to DC and going in as head coach, for me was if you look at all the big teams and the culture, it’s so diverse with different nationalities, different religions.”
