The former England captain, Wayne Rooney hopes to manage Everton in the future.

Rooney returned to boyhood club Everton last July after 13 years at Manchester United. But he has not been a guaranteed starter for the Toffees since the appointment of Sam Allardyce as Ronald Koeman’s successor at Goodison Park.

“The main thing I want to have a go at is management,” Rooney told the Telegraph.

“I would love to stay at Everton in a coaching role or hopefully manager one day.

“It is something I want to do, to stay involved, but if that is not possible I will look to see where the opportunities are for me. I am determined to become a manager.

“From next season I want to be doing some coaching sessions with the Under-14s at Everton. It would be good to have all my [coaching] badges by the time I have finished [playing], but it is also about having the chance to carry on when I have, so I can get straight into coaching.”

“Obviously my first objective is to do well as a player over the next few years,” Rooney added. “Then I hope the role can grow into something beyond that. It is something I will talk about with the club when they and I feel the time is right.

“There were things I had been dreaming of I had not done for Everton. What I really regretted was I had not scored against Liverpool for Everton. I did it for Manchester United but as a youngster, it was never a dream of mine to score at Anfield for Manchester United.

“I was an Everton fan, so as a young Everton fan I was dreaming of scoring at Anfield for Everton. When I came back I was thinking about the chance to do that. So to do it this year fulfilled that.”
