Wayne Rooney has been linked with a move to his former club Everton after Rafael Benitez was sacked by the Merseyside club. The Premier League’s downfall is not where the Tofi should be so far this season and their desperate situation has seen them become interested in their old wunderkind.
Rooney has just finished a year working as a Derby County manager and it could be the toughest 12 months any manager can have.
The poor financial situation the team is in has left them under a trade bar and they sell the players whatever they can to try to keep the team going for another week. And while all this was going on in the background, Rooney gathered his troops and sent them into battle from time to time with great success.
The club has scored 21 points this season but is already top of the Championship with just eight points left in defense and has plenty of time to come back.
It’s a really good job Rooney is doing at Pride Park and it can be seen as a big gamble to leave midway through the season to join Everton.
However, the Toffees have another purpose in mind like Belgian coach Roberto Martinez and his assistant Thierry Henry.
The duo achieved great success on the international stage after reaching the semi-finals of the World Cup but Martinez’s previous job was in Goodison Park where he was sacked due to poor results and fan riots.
Martinez is the current favorite of writers in the profession but his return could cause a stir among Everton fans after Benitez’s failure.
