Ferguson: Wayne Rooney has knowledge of the game: hope he does well

Wayne Rooney’s transfer into management on a permanent basis was reviewed by Alex Ferguson and Gareth Southgate.

Alex Ferguson says Wayne Rooney has a “presence about him” and is optimistic that the iconic forward will excel in management after announcing his retirement from playing.

Two months after replacing Phillip Cocu as interim coach, Rooney was officially appointed as Derby County manager on Friday.

“He is England’s top goalscorer, he is Manchester United’s top goalscorer and he has had a fantastic career as a player and it will give him a starting point,” Ferguson said on the ‘A Team Talk With Legends’ panel on Friday.

“But like anyone else, it is a results industry and you need to get results. He will know that better than anyone.”

“He has had a good start… and he has knowledge of the game, a presence about him and I hope he does well.”

“It is a big step for him. He is quite a wealthy young man now with his career in football, so he probably doesn’t need to go into management to look after his family, but he wants to do it and that is important.”

“There is no point being a manager because someone asks you to be. He went there as a player-coach, he then becomes player-manager and now he has the manager’s job and that’s what he wanted. Hopefully, he does well.”
