Rooney is about to leave the Derby County ‘shipwreck’ to return to the English Premier League

In November 2020, Wayne Rooney officially became a professional coach when the former MU player began to lead Derby County Club. However, things have gone wrong and Rooney may be leaving “the team playing in the third division next season” to return to the Premier League.

According to The Sun, Wayne Rooney is the number one candidate to sit on the hot seat at Burnley after this football fired veteran coach Sean Dyche. Although he could not successfully lead Derby County to relegation after a catastrophic penalty, the former MU player is still extremely appreciated by experts.

After retiring, Rooney began his coaching career with Derby County. However, Rooney’s path to leading the first-class team this season is not easy. Derby has started the 2021/22 season not bad.

After 8 rounds, they earned 10 points and ranked 12th. But at the end of September 2021, a disaster struck and changed the situation rapidly. Derby received a 12-point deduction for breaking financial rules.

At that time, coach Wayne Rooney said that he and his players would fight to the end, just hoping the club would not suffer further punishment. Because if 21 points are deducted, according to Rooney, Derby should be ready to play in League One – the 3rd tier playground of English football.

However, Rooney’s concern came true. By November, Derby continued to be deducted another 9 points and was not allowed to transfer, even with free players.

Difficulties piled up and there were times when Rooney had to spend money out of his own pocket to help the club maintain. But “one flower can’t make spring”, Derby County are still relegated and play in League One next season after they lost 0-1 to Queens Park Rangers, plus Reading drew Swansea 4-4 at the same time match.

Back to reality, it is not clear what Rooney’s decision will be, but it is likely that the former England striker will give up Derby County. However, the Shrek guy needs to “pray” that Burnley will successfully stay in the Premier League this season if he does not want to return to the Championship again.
