Wayne Rooney Takes the Helm at Birmingham City

Birmingham City has officially appointed Wayne Rooney as their new manager. The 37-year-old former England captain has signed a three-and-a-half-year managerial contract with the Championship club.

Rooney is taking over the role from John Eustace, who the club sacked on Monday after his 15-month tenure as head coach. This change in management is the first under the ownership of Blues’ new American owners, Shelby Companies Limited, who assumed control in July.

Supporting Rooney in his managerial role are his former England teammate and current England Under-21 assistant, Ashley Cole, along with his former Manchester United colleague, John O’Shea, who serves as the assistant coach for the Republic of Ireland men’s national team. Additionally, Carl Robinson and Pete Shuttleworth, who previously worked with Rooney at DC United, are also joining his coaching staff.

His playing philosophy aligns with the ambitions we’ve set for the club, and Wayne’s preparation for this opportunity, starting from his coaching education during his Manchester United playing days, is truly commendable. The board and everyone at the club fully support him and his staff.”
