Despite insisting he is enjoying his career with DC United in the MLS, Wayne Rooney has spoken of plans regarding a return to Manchester United or Everton in the future. For the 33-year-old former England captain, however, it will only be in a coaching capacity.
Rooney, who has enjoyed a renaissance in the United States, is thinking of seeing out the rest of his playing career in the MLS with D.C. United after a 13-year stint at Manchester United where he became the club’s all-time highest goal scorer and also turning out for his boyhood club, Everton.
Speaking with Eddie Hearn’s No Passion, No Point, Rooney said: “I’m good, I’ve got two years after this year and then depending on how I feel at the end of it will determine if I keep playing or not.
“I’ll finish my career here and then see what offers come up.
“When I finish playing my aim is to go straight into coaching, at whatever level. We’ll see what opportunities come up.”
According to England’s all-time leading goalscorer, the two most appealing options to him are in the familiar of United and Everton.
He added: “There’s Everton and Manchester United, either of those two would be nice.
“You love your family unconditionally. It’s like that with Everton.
“Everton is the team I’ll always love, that I grew up supporting. I went to all the games, when they got to the FA Cup final against Chelsea I was playing for Man United, they actually beat us in the semi-final!
“They’re the two teams I’ll always want to win.”
He has recorded 20 goals in just 36 appearances during his time in the MLS.
