Wayne Rooney insists coaching awards delay is no barrier to starting new management role with Derby County

Rooney has long stated an ambition to move into management as he nears the end of his playing days, and is confident he can handle the stress of the role while juggling it with family life.

“I think I’ve always been quite good at switching myself off,” he said when asked about joining what Scotland boss Steve Clarke calls the ‘land of no sleep’.

“While I’m at the club I do all the work that needs to be done but I’ve always found that balance that when I go home I put football away for a time and have my family life.

“Of course there are still decisions to make – me and Liam have been in constant communication on the phone – but in the main I’m quite good at switching off.”
