Derby County boss Wayne Rooney has vowed to repay the faith shown in him by the club after the Manchester United legend guided the team to safety on the final day of the English Championship season this term.
Wayne Rooney recently spoke to the club's official TV about his future, football management and Derby County owner Mel Morris. The ex-Three Lions of England striker told Rams TV that his future lies with the club and that he's ready to take Derby County to the next level. Wayne Rooney also thanked the owner Morris for the faith shown in him.

Rooney said that he always knew that he would go into football management after hanging up his boots. The former Manchester United striker was the mastermind as the Rams escaped relegation to English League One with a dramatic 3-3 draw at home to Sheffield Wednesday. The result sent Sheffield Wednesday down to League One.

Manchester United all-time leading goalscorer Wayne Rooney joined Derby County at the start of last year in a player/coach capacity before he was made the interim manager towards the end oflast year on the back of the dismissal of Dutch coach Philip Cocu who led the Rams to the bottom of the English Championship table.

Rooney made a great start to life as the Derby County interim manager. He led the club out of the relegation zone and that prompted the owner to give him the managerial job on a full-time basis. The Englishman hung up his boots earlier in January to take the job permanently. After a great managerial start, Rooney and his Derby County players stuttered over the line at the end of the season thanks to the draw with the Owls on the final day.
