Wayne Rooney has shared his desire to one day manage Manchester United in an interview with Gary Neville.

Following United’s FA Cup final success against rivals Manchester City a dark cloud still threatens to rain on the victory parade as pressure and uncertainty continue to increase on Erik ten Hag‘s position at the helm.

Sir Jim Ratcliffe and INEOS are said to be conducting a “season review” which will determine if the Dutchman keeps his job.

In recent weeks club officials have met with the representatives of Kieran McKenna, Thomas Frank and Mauricio Pochettino to see if they would be interested in being a potential replacement for Ten Hag but they have also been notified that no decision has been made on the former Ajax boss’s future.

One man who has not been shy about aspiring to be in charge at Old Trafford at some point in his career is The Reds’ all-time top goalscorer, Wayne Rooney.

The 38-year-old has just been appointed manager of Championship side Plymouth Argyle, having previously been the gaffer for Derby County, D.C. United, and Birmingham City.

Just at the beginning of his managerial career, which has already had many ups and downs, Rooney has his sights set on the club at which he became a household name.

Speaking to former United captain Gary Neville on The Overlap, when asked what one club in the world he would choose to manage, the former forward replied: “It’s a tough one because I’ve always said that I’d love to manage Everton or Manchester United.

“I’d probably say United – that would be the pinnacle to manage Manchester United. 

“Everton would be more from an emotional standpoint, a club I support and love, but United would be the pinnacle really.”

This shows the allure and prestige that Manchester United holds as a club, as it is still seen as a dream destination.
