It’s Rooney’s second management role after leaving Derby County last month.

The football icon says he spoke to his wife about the new position, and is looking forward to the challenges that lie ahead. He also responded to critics in England.

“I’ve seen a few articles, certainly back in England, on this being a possible backward step in my managerial career. I really find that a bit disrespectful to this league.”
