Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has opened the door for Wayne Rooney to work as one of his backroom staff after the former Manchester United player claimed he wouldn’t mind being an assistant coach for the City manager.

Pep Guardiola and Wayne Rooney

Rooney has been experiencing difficulties in his managerial career, the Red Devils legend was sacked from the clubs he had managed so far. The latest setback happened last month when he was sacked by EFL Championship outfit Birmingham City.

Since then he has been out of management and wouldn’t mind joining Pep Guardiola at Man City should Catalonia demand his service or give him a chance among his backroom staff.

Rooney hailed Pep Guardiola as the best coach in the world, particularly his impact on the young coaches who had worked with him.

“It depends (on whether I’d ever be an assistant) – if Pep Guardiola comes in and asks me to be his assistant, you’d walk there… For me, the best manager is Pep and you look at how he adapts – how they (City) are playing now is not the same as how they were playing four years ago.”

Pep Guardiola while speaking ahead of Manchester City’s match against Bournemouth, opened the door for the former Man United captain. He said Rooney remains one of the greatest footballers of all time in England, therefore, he will be welcomed to City.

“He can come anytime, more than welcome. For all of City of course it’s important but he’s Red Devil so he is a United fan. So of course it’s nice for all of us, Wayne Rooney has been one of the greatest in this country of all time.

“He knows, he was there, he was in United. He won a lot of Premier Leagues so that means how difficult it is to be in there and that means he knows how difficult it is.”
