Wayne Rooney has said he is ready to take the caretaker position in Derby County.
Manchester United great Rooney has confirmed that he will take over Derby County’s championship match against Bristol City next weekend after Phillip Cocu was sacked.
Rooney is one of the pioneers in accepting the position permanently.
“I’m sorry that Phillip and his team left the club,” he said.
“I want to personally thank you for all your help and encouragement as part of your coaching staff.
“The most important thing now is to stabilize the club and start climbing the board.
“I have been asked to join the coaching staff to help the team prepare for next Saturday’s vital game against Bristol City.
“The coaches and I will talk to the players on Monday.”
