Wayne Rooney: Ji-sung Park tips Rooney as future Manchester United manager
The Derby County boss doesn’t feature on the bookies’ favourites but former United team-mate Ji-sung Park reckons he could be one to watch.
Rooney, now boss at Derby County, is not enjoying a vintage season with the Rams, who have been docked 21 points in the Championship this season for entering into administration.
However, Park told football website Goal prior to Solskjaer’s sacking that he thinks Rooney is a future United boss in the making.
He said: “I believe Wayne can make it. He had great experiences from his very young age and he also had many difficult moments in his career that he overcame eventually... He has great leadership skills as well. So, I believe he can be United’s manager in the future.”
