Derby County manager, Wayne Rooney has admitted he went into management so that one day he can take over at Manchester United.
The 36-year-old became United’s leading scorer of all time, with 253 goals following 13 trophy-laden seasons.
Rooney is also fans’ favourite at Everton, as he came through the club’s academy and returned for one season towards the end of his playing career.
He, however, turned down the chance to interview for the Everton job after Rafa Benitez was sacked.
