Wayne Rooney is named as Derby County's new manager, with the ex-England captain also announcing his retirement from playing.
Officially announced his retirement as a player as well at the age of 35.
Lets see how he does Derby certainly don't have the financial backing they did a few years back when they really should have got promoted he'll have to do a lot more work with youngsters and sort out some pretty poor disciplinary issues from off the field over recent seasons.
I'm surprised he's gone into management he never struck me as someone who would be up for being that front facing.
