Wayne Rooney Everton

Derby boss and Everton legend Wayne Rooney revealed he was flattered by reports linking him to the role of head coach but maintained that no formal approach has been made. Rafael Benitez was sacked after managing just one win in their last 13 Premier League games. Rooney maintained that he is fully focused on the job at hand at Derby who is in the midst of administration.

“I’m the same as everyone else, I see the speculation on social media and in the newspapers and, of course, Everton is a club I grew up supporting,” Everton legend Wayne Rooney said. “I’m flattered to get brought up in those conversations, but I know Everton will know that for them to have any communication with me they have to go through the administrators.”

“Everyone loves a fairytale, but from my point of view, my focus is on the game tomorrow. It’s a massive game, it’s a local derby and I have to make sure I treat it with the utmost respect it deserves, and this club deserves,” he added. “They haven’t come calling to the administrators, so I’m not letting anything distract me from the job I’m doing here. I understand the questions have to be asked, but there has been no communication [from Everton] with the administrators, so I can’t say much more on the matter. We’re all frustrated and wanting a solution and wanting it to get sorted as quickly as possible, but it’s out of our control.”
