Wayne Rooney wanted for Birmingham City job as Rangers chase boss John Eustace
Wayne Rooney is reportedly being pursued by Birmingham City to succeed John Eustace as manager.
Blues boss Eustace has recently been linked with several jobs after impressing in his first full season in charge. Among those understood to be interested in the Englishman are Scottish giants Rangers.
Should a move materialise, it would leave Birmingham short of a manager five games into the Championship season, where they currently sit in fourth place.
Current D.C. United head coach Rooney, 37, has therefore been considered as the unbeaten sides next manager, potentially following Tom Brady through the door after the NFL legend became an investor.
