This move marks the fourth managerial role in Wayne Rooney’s coaching career, which has yet to replicate the success he enjoyed as a player.

In a statement released by the club, Wayne Rooney expressed his enthusiasm for the new role, saying, “Taking this role at Plymouth Argyle feels like the perfect next step in my career. This is an opportunity to be part of an exciting project. I look forward to helping to build a squad of players to play expansive football – and to entertain the Green Army.”

Wayne Rooney’s appointment comes after a tumultuous spell at Birmingham City, where he was sacked after just 83 days in charge.

During his brief tenure, he won only two of 15 matches, contributing to the team’s relegation to League One.

Prior to that, he had a short stint with DC United in Major League Soccer.

However, he did demonstrate his managerial potential during his first role at Derby County, where he navigated the club through difficult circumstances, including administration.

Plymouth Argyle chairman Simon Hallett praised Rooney’s passion, intelligence, and knowledge, saying, “Throughout the interview process, Wayne showed himself to be a passionate, intelligent, and knowledgeable candidate with an appetite to prove himself and develop his managerial career.

His ambitions and aims match ours perfectly, and we feel he is the perfect candidate to provide the exciting and attacking brand of football that we all like to see and help us achieve the club’s mission.”
