John Terry is a front runner in the Derby County’s role, but his former England captain Wayne Rooney is keen to make his Pride Park interim chief permanent. A decision is not expected until the championship club takeover is complete.
Derby interim boss Wayne Rooney has reiterated his desire to run the club full-time, but admitted that an interview is unlikely until the new owners join.
Rooney temporarily took command of Pride Park after Phillip Cocu was sacked in November, and Derby are now bottom of the table after losing two and drawing two under the 35-year-old’s watch.
John Terry, a former England captain and currently assistant coach at Aston Villa, has emerged as the frontrunner for the derby role after the club’s takeover was completed.
Earlier this week, Sky Sports News confirmed newspaper reports linking Terry to the derby job, which the ex-Chelsea defender sees as an excellent first opportunity in management.
Rooney previously admitted that he would stay at the club as a player if another manager was brought in, and on Thursday he said developments were unlikely until the deal is complete.
« I don’t know where I was on Tuesday night, » Rooney told reporters ahead of Derby’s game in Millwall on Saturday.
On the prospect of being interviewed, Rooney added, « I think the first thing is to get the property through the line. I stated on Tuesday and Saturday that I would of course like to do this job full time, but we are where we are. We’ll have to wait until all the papers are sorted and then we’ll see what happens from there. «
Following Derby’s 1-1 home draw with Coventry on Tuesday, Rooney hopes the new owner will be quickly confirmed to fill the leadership position.
He said, « I honestly don’t know (if I will be responsible) since I have said I am confident in this job and this role and of course I would love to do the job. If not, I’ll be here as a player, but we have plans in place, and if not, the players at least have the stability to know the plans for the next few weeks and have something to work on.
« Hopefully the sooner the new property is, the better because I think a decision needs to be made.
« I’ve been asked to take over the team until a decision is made, and I do. The sooner the decision is made – not just for the players, but for all employees of the football club – the more stability we can achieve and further plans for the future. «
