Wayne Rooney retires to become permanent Derby boss

Wayne Rooney has retired from playing after being appointed Derby County manager on a permanent basis.

The 35-year-old retires as the all-time leading goalscorer for both Manchester United and England.

Rooney has been acting as interim manager at Derby since the end of November, but has now taken the job permanently on a two-and-a-half-year contract.

Rooney said: "When I first arrived back in the United Kingdom I was completely blown away by the potential of Derby County Football Club. The stadium, training ground, the quality of the playing staff and the young players coming through and of course the fan base that has remained loyal and supportive.

"Despite other offers, I knew instinctively Derby County was the place for me.
