Wayne Rooney is keen to return to football management, and he’s looking into taking the helm in the Saudi Pro League, according to The Sun.
According to the story, the former Manchester United player is thinking about accepting a position with a Saudi Arabian club, just like his former England teammate Steven Gerrard did.
It further says that the player is eager to return to management and would be overjoyed to take charge of a team in the Middle East, according to people close to the player.
The Sun further reports that Rooney has been informed of a Saudi club’s possible interest, which sees his appointment as a way to raise awareness of the league.
Rooney was fired by Birmingham and is now taking a vacation in Dubai. After just three months in charge, he was fired from the English club due to his lack of success, winning just two of their fifteen games.
Rooney’s managerial career may have suffered during his time at Birmingham, and a move to Saudi Arabia might present him with a new chance to demonstrate his managerial prowess.
