Wayne Rooney Goes Back to School for Coaching Course
- Wayne Rooney has taken a step further towards earning his coaching badges after he returned to school for his final year
- The former England international went into football management before getting coaching papers
- Rooney, who is currently in charge of DC United, landed his first managerial job in 2021 with Derby County
Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney is reportedly set to complete his coaching exams in the coming days after he returned to school for his final year.
Rooney transitioned into football management after he wound up his playing career at Derby County.
According to The Sun, the former England international has been working on his coaching papers and has flown through the course so far.
However, it is understood that he must make a final presentation before he is eligible to get Pro Licence.
Wazza, who became Derby boss in 2021 before he had time to get his coaching badges, is said to have been pushing on with his studies after he landed the DC United job in the MLS last year.
The 37-year-old will now be sitting for an FA exam before he graduates officially.
Berbatov backs Wayne Rooney
Rooney's significant step towards earning his coaching badges has earned him praise from his former Man United teammate Dimitar Berbatov.
Speaking to Betfred back in May, Berbatov reckoned Rooney has everything it takes to become a top manager in the coming years.
“Not many players from my time at Manchester United have actually gone into management," the former striker said.
“But in my opinion, Wayne Rooney would like to be a future Manchester United manager and I’m pretty sure he’s going to be" he added.
Wayne Rooney vindicated
Earlier, Sports Brief reported Manchester United legend Wayne Rooney was among the few people who predicted the Champions League semi-final clash between Manchester City, and Real Madrid would be a case of men against boys.
Going into the tie, one would have been considered an optimist to bet against Real Madrid, who are the most successful club in Champions League history, with 14 titles under their belt.
Despite the odds being fairly balanced, Rooney, who has had his share of clashes with both Real Madrid and City as a player, believed Pep Guardiola’s side would be too strong for the Spanish giants.
