Wayne Rooney has admitted he would love to return to either Manchester United or Everton in a coaching role after finishing his playing career.

The former England star is currently plying his trade in USA’s MLS and still has over two years to run on his current DC United deal.

Rooney featured for United from 2004 to 2017 becoming a household name at Old Trafford before returning to his boyhood club Everton for the 2017/18 campaign.

While the striker does not see his return to the Premier League as a player, he did talk about his wish to re-join either United or Everton in the coming years.

“There’s Everton and Manchester United, either of those two would be nice,” Rooney said. “You love your family unconditionally. It’s like that with Everton.

“I have got two years after this year and then depending on how I feel at the end of it will determine if I keep playing or not. I will finish my career in the US and then see what offers come up.

“When I finish playing my aim is to go straight into coaching, at whatever level. We’ll see what opportunities come up.”
