Birmingham club owner Tom Wagner expressed his thoughts by saying, “Rooney is a natural winner,” and that “Rooney’s playing philosophy will be a great help in the team’s promotion to the top division.”
Coach Rooney responded, “I’m really happy to be joining the team at this exciting time.” He went on to say, “It will be a new challenge,” and “I will do my best to realize my goal.”
Rooney, who played for Everton and Manchester United, also played 120 international matches for England and scored 53 goals. After retiring in January 2021, he began his career as a manager by taking charge of Derby County, a team in the Championship at the time. He served as a playing coach, but became a manager when the manager was sacked.
Afterwards, Rooney moved to the United States and took over as manager of DC United. However, when the team failed to advance to the playoffs, he parted ways with the team and returned to the British stage.
