  • Wayne Rooney has a big job on his hands as interim manager of Derby County
  • Derby are currently bottom of the Championship, five points adrift of safety
  • Rooney is seeking his first victory as Derby boss against Millwall on Sunday
  • He has spoken to his ex-managers Sir Alex Ferguson and David Moyes for advice 
  • Rooney faces competition for the permanent job at Derby from John Terry
  • Wayne Rooney has revealed he has spoken to Sir Alex Ferguson for advice as he takes his first steps as a manager with Derby.

    The former England captain, who faces competition for the permanent job from John Terry, is in charge of Derby’s interim coaching team while the club await the proposed £60million takeover by Sheikh Khaled bin Zayed Al Nehayan and will seek to claim his first win as a boss at Millwall on Sunday.

    Derby are desperate for results as they are bottom of the Championship, five points adrift of safety. 

  • The former striker has revealed he has chatted to Sir Alex Ferguson since taking over at Derby
    Rooney has made it clear that he wants the job full-time and has spoken to both Sir Alex and West Ham boss David Moyes, his manager when he broke through at Everton as a 16-year-old, for guidance.

  • Rooney said: ‘I spoke to Sir Alex and David Moyes, as well as a few different people. It was nice to have the chance to catch up on certain things.

  • ‘It wasn’t particularly about how the team was playing or how we should set up. It was more of a general. 

    'If I can speak to Sir Alex Ferguson again I would be a bit naive not to, and it was great for David Moyes to give me a call and offer his help.’

    There is no one better for Rooney to take advice from during his early managerial days than legendary United boss Ferguson.

    Terry would reportedly want Ashley Cole to join his backroom team if he became Derby boss

    Under Rooney's time with Ferguson at Old Trafford, the former striker won five Premier League titles and the Champions League in 2008. 

    However, Rooney's plans to take over at Derby on a permanent basis are under threat from his former England team-mate and Chelsea captain Terry. 

    The Rams are searching for a new manager after sacking Phillip Cocu in November with Terry one of the front-runners alongside current interim boss Rooney.

    Terry is a real contender for the Derby job with key figures among the club's prospective new owners impressed by the former England and Chelsea skipper.

    Terry has never been a No 1, but there are those close to Sheik Khaled — who believe Terry would be able to revive Derby's fortunes. 

    Rooney has also spoken to David Moyes, his manager when he broke through at Everton

    The 39-year-old is part of Dean Smith's coaching staff at Aston Villa but is keen to move into management.

    If Terry beats Rooney to the permanent job at Pride Park, it has been reported that he would look to make former Chelsea and England team-mate Ashley Cole part of his management team.

    The former left back, who finished his career with a short spell at Derby in 2019, is currently an academy coach at Chelsea and also works as a TV pundit, but according to the Mirror - Terry reportedly thinks he can make the coaching step-up to senior football.
