BREAKING NEWS: Man Utd legend Wayne Rooney tipped to take first new role in football since Birmingham City sacking

After leaving management at the start of 2024, Manchester United great Wayne Rooney may find himself with a fantastic new opportunity in football, according to startling rumors.

Wayne Rooney’s tenure as manager came to an end in January when Birmingham City fired him after his disastrous tenure at St Andrew’s.

Only 83 days passed during the 38-year-old former Manchester United striker’s tenure at Birmingham City, as he lost nine of his 15 games in command.

The United great has spoken up, acknowledging that he has been approached with various offers, one of which was to participate in a Misfits Boxing match.

Following his stint with DC United, Rooney joined Birmingham City and has since participated in punditry responsibilities following his dismissal from the Championship club in January.

The former England and United captain watched United’s 1-0 FA Cup victory over Nottingham Forest in the fifth round at City Ground in February as part of the BBC’s coverage.

Man Utd great Rooney is expected to take on a new role.

Last week, former Birmingham City manager Wayne Rooney was supposed to make his Match of the Day debut, but he was compelled to cancel the program.

“Gutted not to be making my debut on the historic [Match of the Day] show tonight, it’s something I have wanted to accomplish since I was kid,” he wrote in a post on the social networking platform X, formerly known as Twitter.

“Unfortunately, while on vacation with my family, I suffered a terrible back injury. However, I am eager to rejoin the squad soon.

“I hope [Gary Lineker] and the boys have a great show tonight, and I’ll see you soon.”

“Looking forward to having you on soon,” was the message that Match of the Day’s official X account tweeted in response to the tweet.

As a “important Euro 2024 analyst” for the BBC’s coverage of the European competition in Germany this summer, Wayne Rooney may soon return to football.

The Sun claims that the former England and United striker might be included in the panel of pundits selected for Euro 2024.

The publication also stated that because of Rooney’s “playing pedigree” at important tournaments with England, the BBC would be eager to feature him.

While captaining England, Rooney broke Sir Bobby Charlton’s record for most goals scored in an England uniform. Later, Harry Kane surpassed his former Three Lions teammate.

According to The Sun, Rooney’s international experience with England would give the BBC’s coverage of Euro 2020 “additional legitimacy with fans.”

Rooney is prepared to rejoin management.

Apart from his brief stint as a pundit, Rooney has acknowledged that he is eager to move past his turbulent tenure at Birmingham City and return to managing.

During a February appearance on The Overlap’s Stick to Football program, he declared: “I would absolutely [take a role in League One].”

“I want to show myself and get back into management, whether it’s in League Two, League One, or the Championship.”

“It’s all experience; at the age of 38, I’ve held three positions in management. I have a good deal of experience, having managed Derby in the past and traveled to the States to manage DC United.

In terms of experience as a manager, I still have enough to draw from. My goal is to concentrate on returning to management.

“For me, the most important thing is to essentially start again as a manager and entirely disregard my playing career.

“Obviously, having played will help, but as far as managers go, I’m at the bottom, and I want to work my way up.

“I’m not depending on my past performance as a player to lead me into inappropriate situations.”
