Former English captain, Wayne Rooney is in talks with Derby County United to become a player coach at the Championship club.
Even though the Former Man U captain still has two seasons more to spend with DC United, officials of the club think Rooney could provide a good service in helping the team get back to the Premier League.
There is a higher possibility that the deal will pull through successfully judging from how optimistic the officials of the team are.
However, DC United is set to face LA Galaxy at their home this Sunday.
Frank Lampard was appointed as the manager for DC United last season.
“It’s something which I want to stay involved in; [my coaching badges] are going well.
“I’m obviously still a player and I want to continue to play. When the time is right I can go into coaching or management.” Rooney said.
