Wayne Rooney Takes Over As Player-Coach At Derby County.(See Details)

Former Manchester United attacking midfielder, Wayne Rooney is set to assume the role of a player-coach ahead of Derby County Championship match on Saturday.

According to the BBC, the former England captain, 35, has been in joint-interim charge alongside Liam Rosenior, Shay Given and Justin Walker for the Rams’ past two matches.

But it is understood player-coach Rooney will not play against Wycombe and will be in charge of the team ahead of the match.

Rooney has therefore been given responsibility for team selection and tactics for Saturday’s game.

Rooney is among the candidates to get the manager’s job going forward, but it is believed the club will not make an appointment before the outcome of a proposed takeover led by Sheikh Khaled bin Zayed Al Nehayan is known.
