Wayne Rooney admits he’d ‘walk’ to Man City if they ever offered him a job: Wayne Rooney, a former star for Manchester United, believes he would seize the opportunity to work as a coach at Manchester City under Pep Guardiola.

Even though the former England and United striker has already begun his career as a head coach, he would not think twice about joining his old team’s fiercest opponents if given the chance to train under Guardiola.

In order to support his assertion, the 38-year-old used Mikel Arteta’s advancement at Arsenal following a stint as Guardiola’s assistant.

When asked if he would accept a position as an assistant, Rooney told the Stick to Football podcast, “It depends. If Pep Guardiola came in and asked me to be his assistant, you’d walk in! But you see what Arteta is doing today, and I really feel a lot of that stems from understanding what Guardiola was doing, so it depends on the situation.”

After his playing career came to an end Rooney took on three different roles as manager. Prior to joining D.C. United in the Major League Soccer (MLS) as their manager, he spent a year and a half at Derby.

During that time, they won just 14 of the 53 games they played; he resigned in October of last year to take a position at Birmingham.

Rooney’s tenure with the Championship team was short-lived, as after just two victories in 15 games, he was fired by NFL icon Tom Brady and other Birmingham board members.

Rooney is still looking for a new team and has stated that he would take a lower position in order to advance in his career. He continued, saying:

“Of course, my playing experience will help me, but I’m right at the bottom from a managerial point of view, and I want to work my way up. I’m not relying on what I’ve done as a player to get me into places that I shouldn’t be.”
