According to The Athletic, Wayne Rooney, a former player for Manchester United, has agreed to take the D.C. United coaching job.
The former England striker has rejoined the Major League Soccer franchise where he previously competed, according to Steven Goff of The Washington Post.
On Sunday at noon, the former manager of Derby County arrived at Dulles International Airport with plans to finalize the arrangements and sign his contract.
Chad Ashton, the interim coach, would be replaced by the Man United legend, who would continue to serve as one of his coaches.
Along with Inter Miami’s Phil Neville, Minnesota United’s Adrian Heath, Nashville S.C.’s Gary Smith, and NYC F.C.’s Nick Cushing, Rooney would become the league’s fifth active English coach.
