Former Manchester United star, Wayne Rooney is starting the year unemployed. He has been sacked after taking Birmingham City from 6th to 20th in the Championship.

However, the England legend who was appointed to replace John Eustace flayed his sack saying the decision of the owners of the club was hurriedly taken.

The former England and Manchester United captain having lost nine of his 15 matches, winning just twice, and Birmingham’s board took the decision to fire him.

But he said: “I would like to thank Tom Wagner, Tom Brady and Garry Cook for the opportunity to manage Birmingham City FC and the support they all gave me during my short period with the club,” he said.

“Football is a results business – and I recognise they have not been at the level I wanted them to be. However, time is the most precious commodity a manager requires and I do not believe 13 weeks was sufficient to oversee the changes that were needed.

“Personally, it will take me some time to get over this setback. I have been involved in professional football, as either a player or manager, since I was 16. Now, I plan to take some time with my family as I prepare for the next opportunity in my journey as a manager.

“Finally, I wish Birmingham City FC and its owners my best wishes in the pursuit of their ambitions.”
